Yes anyone getting sexually harassed is equally as bad, but in general women get harassed way more than men do. It's the same with domestic violence, nobody should have to live through that, but more women in general will suffer from that than men do, but it's equally as bad for any victim of domestic violence.
Pretty sure the OP was edited. It did initially ask whether one was more common than the other, now it seems to ask if one is worse than the other.
You're not being targeted for a wind up, Taf. I get the feeling this is more misguided than malicious. The bloke seems fairly interested in actually learning from the arguments put forward to oppose his views, which is more than can be said for some others, myself included.

Thanks man. But yeah, moderators this thread has run its course, give it the old lock.
@LightWanderer: I don't want you to feel like it's bad for you to ask political questions on GRcade---it's not!---but I'd say most of us here are already quite passionately feminist, in favour of representation, and so on, whereas it sounds to me like you're perhaps exploring these ideas for the first time. That's fine, of course---I'm glad you seem open to those concepts---but given your curiosity about these ideas I thought now might be the time to recommend a few brief YouTube videos you might enjoy.
You don't have to watch them; you don't have to agree with them if you do watch them; but I feel like they will probably help you to get a feel for what the SJW ( ) worldview is all about. Here they are:
HBomberGuy on male fantasies and female representation in videogames
Shaun on how "simple statistics" and "dictionary definition" style argumentation is misleading when it comes to describing oppression, which is complex and nuanced
ContraPoints on decrypting alt-right dog-whistles
ThreeArrows on conspiracy theories about feminism, etc.
(EDIT: Then if you want to level up and own us all with actual philosophy, watch this one:)
That being said, I'll lock this now in line with your request.
