comment Recommendations for low-maintenance “town” bike
Hub gears don't have to mean heavy bikes. My 8-speed-hub Ridgeback town bike is less than 1 kg heavier than the sporty derailleur hybrid it replaced.

comment Data to convince teenager that blinking rear light is worth the “uncool” factor
"while he is a teenager, he's smart and logical enough that if I had some convincing data on accident rates, he'd probably buy it." Well done raising your boy to be a sceptic. It seems that you could learn something from him on the subject of evidence-based safety policy. Is there a reason you asked, "Is there some evidence that shows I'm right?" instead of, "Is there some evidence to decide whether I'm right or wrong?"

comment Riding in nice office/casual clothes?
There are other good reasons for men to use a ladies'-style frame: like a real step-through frame, it's a lot more convenient if you wear a long coat, or for older riders who have trouble mounting and dismounting.
