Getting through life successfully seems to require more ignoring than paying attention, alas.

It all depends what options are available to you. Could I become a professional cowboy? Work from hoseback and move herds of cattle?

Nope. Opportunity isn’t there. If I _wanted_ to do that, it’s unlikely I could ever be in a position to do that.

Yet, I’m in a position to be where I am. We all are presented with different opportunities. These place constraints upon our potential future outcomes.

That doesn’t mean you can’t overcome them with sheer willpower and force. I could become an astronaut and go up into space if I got plastic surgery to seem younger, falsified medical documents, knew a few people “in the business”, faked my way through training, etc.

But it’s unlikely.

I’m one of them. Still a part of it though. Depends what you mean by society really. IF you mean office work, 9-5, well it depends.

Let’s say you marry your high school sweetheart, get married, have kids, get a job and a mortgage and a car and have a lifestyle.

Sure, you could walk away from that. But there’s such a thing as duty as well.

Depends. “Man is ruler of house” isn’t as common in western society. There’s more partnerships and “different equals”. Both parents working, kids on the road to university and careers. [this is middle class stereotype here]

Once everybody’s on their hamster wheels, all tied together in a family, uprooting takes cooperation.

More money in surgery and support programs. I’m fine with it tbh. Someone’s gender situation isn’t my concern.

I blame the school system. But the rest of society beyond that just does what it does.
