I mean you don't know me. So it's like wtf. They can be talking to you or a group, saying something random. This has happened to me before. Another thing is I was at the bar and this guy told me I should dance and he started touching my arm. Like wtf. I said I didn't want to and he told me I shouldn't be serious

It's normal and natural for human beings to touch one another like this, in most cases it's just a sign of friendliness. If you don't like it, you can just try ignore it but you can't condemn people for doing it. It isn't harrassment.
What is unnatural and abnormal is the idea that people should never touch or be touched - numerous psychological studies have shown that touch is beneficial to human wellbeing, and that people who are deprived of touch experience negative effects on their health and wellbeing. Babies deprived of touch can have severe long-term damage to their psychological wellbeing - touch-deprived infants can be permanently psychologically damaged. Regular touch even protects against cognitive decline, e. g. alzheimers. Touch is natural and healthy and we need it.
If you honestly feel like you're "going to get violent" over such a small thing, then you should consider that it might not be the men that are "wrong" here... feelings of violence are bad, if you really feel like you might be violent, I would honestly and with kindness suggest you do some digging into your childhood to try figure out why you feel such intense negative reactions to something so small. My experience is that those kinds of intense feelings are often a symptom of something like earlier child abuse.0
