It absolutely is.

"Ok. I’ll be charitable. Maybe it’s the same sort of thing as walking behind a woman late at night – and the way some guys just don’t get that that is intimidating: think it is about THEIR rights, THEIR freedoms. But, I’ll say it again: this is a bigger issue than many are prepared to admit.

It’s about misogyny. It’s about intimidation. It’s about silencing."

This is what hit the nail on the head for me. It is men's privilege (and sense of entitlement) getting in the way again. Even those men who don't partake in the offensive insults or threatening behaviour, are not joining up the dots.
