    Things like "Neomorphism" is why writing about UI design is so embarrassing compared to other design disciplines.

    It's not surprising at all, if you're in some parts of the industry men are the minority.

    Depends if they're illustrating a piece of art or a piece of design.

    however the simplification of technology is helping humans

    Look at a toddler who has never used an iPad in their life and one that owns an iPad and tell me that.

    The change in personality, aggression and attention span is horrifying.

    Actual list is just here https://developer.apple.com/design/awards/

    Doesn't really reflect the reality of the iOS world and living with that device, it's mostly just quaint tweet game apps and a few apple pencil tech demos.

    The industry push for trying to get designers to learn react has nothing to with helping designers work better and all to do with getting designers to do the grunt work the engineers whinge about and because designers are often paid less.

    Nothing wrong with wanting to learn to code but just make sure you actually demand a higher salary if you do provide this stuff, don't just become a markup monkey for the engineering team to offload boring work onto.

    Don't convince yourself that doing marketing is actually doing activism.

    In the end it's goal is self serving to you and its a bit insulting to the people you claim to be helping that doing your job to benefit your product and you is actually helping them.
