I think you articulated it well and most people probably feel the same way; only the extremists on the subject appear to view it differently. There are definitely different degrees of severity.

A man who's just a pervy creep -- always leering, constant sexual innuendo, inappropriately touching, grabbing, pinching -- is one thing. It's not a crime and shouldn't be put in the same category as rape, sexual harassment and job threatening in the work place, drugging and sexually abusing people, molestation...

Harvey Weinstein and Al Franken's actions, for example, fall into very different categories of sexual misconduct. In my opinion.
