comment Users will adapt to your UI
You've chosen examples which have in common that they are smaller aspects with a simple binary choice. And of course the 'correct' answer may indeed be arbitrary and decided by tradition. However to generalise and say that users can adapt to all UI/UX is not supported by your examples. You've cherry picked the evidence and it still doesn't support your conclusion.

You can still send a notification to the new address, just not require the activation step :)

comment Best practices for a change of email/user
Instead of step 2, you can make the change but send a notification to the previous email address with link provide to undo/reset the action if required. This removes a barrier for the majority of use cases (genuine change of email, not malicious).

You should be aware that gender isn't binary (for different ways to ask your question see: totb.org.uk/forms ) however it is even necessary to collect gender data in the first place?

comment Choices: showing new items vs a clickable “x new items” banner
Twitter does both. It informs you when new items are available and allows you to load them when you're ready. It also does a some slight highlighting of all new items.
