If you really don't know what the word society means, which I don't believe, it can be summed up in a rough way as the collective shared ideas, beliefs, and moral and cultural attitudes that shape the whole of a given nation or other broad group of humans. Individuals create the whole, but some are...

Perhaps since you aren’t a woman, you struggle to appreciate the societal pressures that women experience. Concerning their bodies and appearance, women do face a lot of pressure in society. It’s not about “ducking personal agency” which should be especially clear if it’s something you hear often. ...

I think that a lot of Asian women go in for surgery to remove the epicanthic fold. And, in a lot of countries where people have a naturally dark complexion, women go in for skin-lightening products.

This is wrong. Women receive unwanted behavior/harassment from attractive men all the time. I certainly have. https://i.postimg.cc/8ktYhgRV/IMG-0391.jpg There are other things which I find even more offensive/wrong, but I don’t want to get this more off-track by calling out nonsense.
