You're right, you don't get it. The worst offenses- the sexual assault and soliciting prostitution- feed on minor ones. When sexual harassment is shrugged off with a nod and a wink, it gives would be attackers the message that women are acceptable prey. On the other hand, a code of conduct that bans even minor examples of sexism will make it clear that any kind of unequal treatment is unacceptable- as long as the words are backed up with concrete action.
