    Such notions are beliefs or opinions about the way society is supposed to be, or how society is supposed to do things. Here are some examples:

    - people aren't supposed to spit in public

    - women are supposed to shave their legs and armpits

    - a real man isn't supposed to show weakness

    - you're supposed to pray before eating a meal

    - you're supposed to bring a gift when invited to a party

    - everyone is supposed to have a best friend

    - everyone is supposed to have a Facebook account

    - red hearts are supposed to symbolize love

    - you're supposed to give out candy on Halloween
