This must be done in right proportion. In a perfect world where victims are as
detached from their suffering as non-victims, your approach might work.  I
still think that starting with trivia like the above or giving primary
attention to them is straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel.

When we are angry over atrocities, whether we are male or female, sometimes
peripheral things are magnified or even distorted. I don't know about you, but
when I am angry over something legitimate, I want my major concerns to be
listened to first, then I am reassured and in a better place to take care of
peripheral matters.
