Sure, semantically, one lens "has" no more compression than any another. But a longer focal length will force you to position yourself further away from your subject, and you will get more compression.

My lenses don't force me to do anything. A longer focal length gives me a narrower field of view, that's all.

Choosing a focal length and deciding where to stand are two separate decisions, and only one of them affects compression.

If I take off my glasses when I put on a hat, can I blame the hat for my vision going blurry?
