That was a video of annoying things that happened to her. Not of dangerous things that happened to her. There's a really big gulf between "some random person makes a rude statement" and "dangerous assault".

I think you're missing that distinction.

I also think you have chosen not to hear the numerous women who have come to the thread to say, "cut it out, dude, you are not helping. If anything, you are increasing the guilt women feel if they are assaulted."
