The video compares the hatred Anita Sarkeesian gets to the hatred Jack Thompson got to basically say "see, it's nothing about her gender, it's just the content."
I'm sorry, but I must have missed the part where Anita tried to sue people and change laws. I also missed the part where she linked specific crimes to video games.

I gave up trying to find the part you're referencing but I would assume that he means the hatred is because gaming is being attacked, not because she's a woman. Had a male made the same videos she did (and the same level of publicity) he would most likely also get hatred from gamers. I doubt he was saying their actions are equivalent because that wouldn't make sense... like you said, suing people and changing laws isn't the same as youtube videos about sexism in mario.
