I can't really speak too much about feminism and I certainly don't want to excuse bad/illegal behavior. No one deserves to be harassed or assaulted.
I guess though I'm just not that surprised in a way. Men just don't know what they're doing around a woman. 99% of us don't. There's a few that do, but they're quite rare. There's no manual that tells us what to do, all we have to really go on is other men who are usually equally stupid with women, lol.
It's not that we're terrible people, it's just 99% of us are not very good with women, really. I know jocks (I like to play sports and lift weights), I know computer dorks (I like video games), I know business suits, I know blue collar electricians. The truth is most men don't know what to do around a semi-attractive woman or will end up doing something stupid if given enough time to do so. It's almost inevitable. I don't say that as an excuse, just that it unfortunately seems to happen a lot regardless of the type of man.
Now hopefully usually it's a harmless, sometimes funny thing, but unfortunately it can just as easily be something creepy/weird. Been in a house with a man? Guess what? There's jizz likely in places you would think there couldn't possible be. lol. Again truth.
I think trying to make it a issue of politics when it is probably more an issue of human nature doesn't really work. Men need to be better about this stuff, but I think if women could actually go inside the mind of a man, they'd probably be stunned at how clueless we are about a lot of the whole sex/dating/relationships/flirting stuff (NOT that this excuses bad behavior, but it probably is the first domino that starts a chain reaction to guys who are assholes and cross the line).
