Mimicry – a protective behavior occurring in animals based on defenseless animals imitating animals capable of defense by taking on their shape, color, and behavior. In plants, the phenomenon is based on plants imitating their surrounding environment. The image of young women training in order to fit their bodies into a body ideal created by culture is part of the phenomenon of cultural mimicry. Women repeating a gesture, working on their appearance, and possessing an attitude with the principles of etiquette are all a kind of protection.
