Is stealth street photography rude?

I posted some photos at a Facebook group, mentioning my technique. I held the camera on a strap to my side and press the shutter via phone app. So  I can get really close with my wide lens.

One woman commented it is rude to take photos without permission particularly women. (What if the photographer is a woman?)

On guy commented it is "dirty".

What is considered "not dirty"? Holding camera with my own hands with a telephoto lens?

How do I draw the line?  I don't want to be an a*hole
