Not just women.
I took images at the local skate park and posted on Flickr to try and help them with fund raising and getting the skate park updated. After a while the snaps were found by some jeans fetish creep who commented about the youngsters images in ways I found inappropriate. The UK is mad enough with Daily Mail reading morons assuming that “anyone with a camera around kids is up to no good”, add in some gay German getting over exited and then commenting was just revolting to me*.

Can the register acquire global powers so we can express our highly valued (obviously) opinions on world issues?
Get that knock on the door “This is the downvote police, we need to have a word with you”.
OH, I've used the down.... word, I'll get my coat.
* I don't have an issue with his being gay or jeans fetish but I do think there is time and place for everything, kids enjoying themselves in a healthy way in a public location is neither IMHO.
