I would argue that privacy protections are a completely separate and necessary issue. It is important that people can't just digitally spy on others and share what they record with the world, and there be no repercussions. There have been numerous cases of people video stalking and then making their footage public - this happens across gender/orientation/affiliation lines.
But that is largely irrelevant to most hate crimes, bullying and the culture of fear and shame that are their result.
