I pointed out this problem to Pinterest already but haven't received any response yet, so I want your feedback on how safe you feel about certain people pinning your pins and using them for their personal satisfaction. And no, I don't mean anything normal, but what we could define as a violation of your body. And browsing your boards like they were Playboy magazine.
I feel unsafe and violated knowing men are pinning my pictures (in which I'm wearing high heels, tights and mini skirts/dresses) to their word removed per Community Guidelines boards. I check every notification to see who and where is pinning my pins with a closeup of shoes or pins with mini skirts/dresses and check every single new follower and block them if they have word removed per Community Guidelines boards, but that doesn't prevent them from pinning my photos to their boards as they can find them all on my website.
Anyway, the point is, I wish Pinterest wouldn't show my photos to men with word removed per Community Guidelines boards (boards with high heels, girls in tights, word removed per Community Guidelines etc.). I feel unsafe and won't even use words such as tights (even though I know it would help ladies with styling tights and skirts) in my pin descriptions just to make sure men won't find my pins so easily.
What can I do - apart from leaving Pinterest, deleting all my content from Pinterest, and preventing users from pinning or saving photos from my website?
Hi @veronikalipar thank you for coming forward and expressing your concerns here in the PBC. Pinner safety and privacy is extremely important to us and we've gone ahead and escalated this to our Trust & Safety team.

Up! This is a very interesting safety and security concern @veronikalipar and thank you for your attention @PinterestJazmin , Btw, I am here representing a man and his feelings who may have been judged by dear @veronikalipar . Anyway I have some ideas as part of the resolution i.e. when creating a pin there should be an advanced option for the following functionality;
That's all and what do you think dear friends @bodymindmood @JanaOMedia @NotABondGirl @hellohomegirl @everydaylifewithlaura @mmillerrr15 @terezatoledo @natashaewards @TailoredByTT @carlyyyyxoo @itsmorganashley_ @AccentYourself @michaelbliss @ArtsyCraftery @hellohomegirl @foxfacedesign @AccentYourself @fannnart @vacayoutravel @camilacurls
