    I'd be happy to stop calling things out for being sexist/racist/agist when things actually stop being sexist/racist/ageist.

    I can understand that this one example might not have intended to be harmful, but when do we stop letting things off the hook because of their intentions and not the actual harm caused by them?

    Moreover, if this generalization isn't that harmful, can we acknowledge that it is at least a little bit harmful, and if we're trying to be the best empathetic designers we can, shouldn't we be minimizing/neutralizing that harm as best we can?

    And, sure, the bulk of this site is talking about his mom in particular, but then we get to these sections:

    You should design with your mother in mind. If she can't understand your site, others will struggle as well.

    My mom would be perfect for this - can I sign her up? Yes! We're accepting suggestions for future moms to work with, so we can review more sites.

    Why only moms?

    One more thing: about generalizations regarding millennials (or any subsection of people holding power), being millennials means we have the luxury of choosing not to be hurt/disadvantaged by broad generalizations about millennials. Millennials aren't being marginalized, and that's the difference.

    ^ Okay, yeah, I get the irony of my making that generalization. There's definitely more to unpack there.

    Anyway, I'm happy to continue talking about this in an environment more conducive to this kind of discussion.

    I don't remember them having desktop-style tabs on iPhone (or if they had, it must have been a long time ago). They're there on iPad, though.

    Regarding the first one, Sunrise already has the option to do this if you're looking for a reason to make the switch :)
