There may be a few "harsh" points this reporter tries to make. And frankly, I agree with her. Feminist make me sick to the stomach.
As far as 'rape' goes. Of course I don't condone it. And i'm not denying any of the rapes that have occurred in the USA. Yes rape happens basically every second I would assume. Although I do believe 'rape' to be a bigger problem for other countries. (the Pope for instance :dn This is not the point, in my opinion.
The point, in my opinion, is these women who think they are superior or equal to men. That's just not how this world works. It's nature. (maybe why i'm single lol)
I know there may be people who are unable to view the video, as I am often times. So i will quote a few of the commentaries said:
"we are living in a rape culture in the west"
"the vast minority of men and women are rapist. and we we do find out they're rapist, they go prison, they are punished. Where as in third world countries and other places, men can get away with rape there."
"men get fired from their jobs for "rape jokes""
"no means no. no means no."
"you know that 10% of rapes are actually reported?" "the cops, women organizations, you can look it up online"
"so how do you know if about 10% of the rapes are reported if they aren't?"
"because those people call the womens centers, they ask for help, they seek medical attention."
"so, they are reported?"
Alright.... "eff her right in the pee"
#3. Focus On Their Most Frivolous Complaints (And Most Unlikable Members)
See, by highlighting the silliest of complaints from a group, you inoculate the audience against any real complaints that might come along later, creating a knee-jerk dismissal any time, say, a male reasonably complains about how even men get screwed by gender roles or when another has a legitimately #ing horrible story to tell. "Ha," the people will say, "these are the same guys who cried over Mad Max having a female hero!" No, they're not, unless we're literally talking about Aaron Clarey. "Who?" Exactly.
Likewise, there are lots of groups out there looking out for the welfare of animals, but I bet the only one you can name is PETA, because they're the ones doing stupid # like insisting people call fish "sea kittens" and staging naked protests that convey no useful information whatsoever. This way, when anyone challenges actual horrific practices in big-money industries (like factory farming or pet stores selling animals from cruel puppy mills) you'll roll your eyes and say, "It's probably those PETA freaks, at it again!"
Because they're ridiculous, they get all the coverage and become the face of the movement. And, as a result, no meaningful change will occur.
Once again I don't need to go on and on about why this is illogical -- the existence of a frivolous complaint doesn't automatically mean there are no more serious ones to be found in that direction. A person dying from cancer can still complain about their favorite TV show getting canceled; that doesn't mean that their cancer must not be a big deal and that it can safely go untreated.

I don't consider myself a "feminist", but did you just call women inferior to men?
