Notice how sociologists don’t waste time telling us about the agency of CEOs or presidents? That’s because that would be pointless. There is no point in talking about those people believing they have power, because they actually do have power; the whole victim/”choice” dance makes no sense in those cases.

“Agency” is inherently reactionary because it is always used to explain away the victims of whatever hierarchy (like gender or race) one wishes to support.
