This is a common conundrum that SJW’s don’t even realize they have. :-)

If you would ask a SJW, “should policies allow anyone the choices to do what they wish”, they would answer YES, thinking about all this racism and discrimination that ostensibly exists.

But then, if you ask them “should policies emphasize what’s best for society”, they would also answer YES, thinking about issues of corporate responsibility, taxation, and the like.

The problem is that “best for the individual” and “best for society” are very often at odds.

Take the statistics on single mothers raising a higher percentage of dysfunctional children than families. With that in mind, if you wanted to create a policy which is best for society, then you’d make divorce almost impossible to get. That stinks if you get stuck in a bad marriage, but the society would have a better crop of kids. :-)
