The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.

But regardless of specific cases, passing judgement without having gonads to deal with yourselves is as dumb as a male saying child-birth isn’t painless because it isn’t problem for him.
If they at least selected pictures where the male in question is clearly doing it and has a lack of self-awareness/consideration for others, but the majority of the photos are just a male without his knees together/a rucksack between his feet.
