Could you please provide an example in the context of this thread?

I love the transportation metaphore (thanks, John!).

Highways have room for people to walk only in case of emergency, but you 
are not allowed to walk in a normal situation. Bikes or horses are not 
allowed to enter a highway. If you want to use the highway, there are 
free modern cars available that you can use. You cannot complain because 
you decide to only use a bicycle.
