Being hit on is generally assumed to be a good thing, and in some ways it is, but in some ways it isn't. For example, being bothered when you just want to go about your business, being treated disrespectfully, being intimidated, having someone ignore your, "sorry, I'm not interested" or insulting you when you reject them, etc.
When women complain about it, they may be:
2. Trying to explain why women may react the way they do when they're hit on (i. e. if they react negatively).
3. Advising men on things not to do when hitting on a woman.
4. Commiserating with other women about the negative experiences they've had.
Perhaps some women complain about men hitting on them as a way to brag, but I think you're wrong to assume that that's the case.
