Well, I haven't read the article, and from the comments I don't really want to :) But there are some important points to be made about the topic.
There is a difference in how men and women react to being publicly checked out, physical affection, etc. And that gets ignored a lot. Men will say 'I don't mind it when someone checks me out' (and maybe that's true and maybe they're a little biased, YMMV as with all user-reported results), and don't understand that often women have a completely different way of perceiving being publicly checked out because of cultural prejudices or history.
Remember, in some countries it's assumed that any woman who gets a public reaction from a man is doing some bad or wrong. Even in Western democracies, frequently when a woman doesn't want attention her wishes get ignored. I don't know a single woman who *hasn't* had to deal with obnoxious creeps in public.
TL;DR AlKim's experience is not the typical experience of women in public - we *don't* have that certainty that men won't start doing creepy stuff when given the chance. That safety in public is a privilege that a lot of men don't extend to women, even when they extend it to other men.
I'm not being sexist, but I know from experience that girls can do stupid things that if guys tried, they'd be called perverts and weirdos etcetera.
And guys can do things that would have people calling a girl a slut and harassing her. Double standards are yucky. :/
