I don't really get angry or outraged about accessibility, but it does make me sad. It makes me sad that the industry doesn't really prioritize teaching this thing, and it's only strongly adhered to if there is a looming legal threat. Open-source projects seem particularly hit or miss (mostly miss), since there is no expectation except that it looks okay and mostly gets the job done.
E.g. this is a sobering read on the state of web accessibility https://ericwbailey.design/writing/2019-03-05-fighting-uphill.html
The thing is, I don't know if accessibility-shaming really works. Especially because there are different degrees, and it's not an all-or-nothing thing. It's not like you're a horrible person if you don't make all touch targets 44x44, every link underlined, and every GIF paused-by-default.
OTOH there are some basic things ppl are missing, like labeling inputs or using buttons instead of divs/spans. We should prioritize teaching those things, because products are literally unusable without them.

It's about values and living a certain way, having a certain culture that you may already find yourself in
