Remove/merge gender?

Is there a way to remove gender from the database? I'm using forced jsconnect registration/sign in, so our members will not be filling out the usual registration form, and I expect many will not change it in their profiles (plus, I'd prefer it if it were inclusive of non-binary genders, but that seems far more complicated a task than just making it irrelevant). Is it possible to just have all instances where it's used to say "he/she" or "his/hers" say "they" and "their" for everyone?

    You are probably looking for custom definitions in your locale. ( (c) @hgtonight )

    In the first half of the definition you put what is currently used in Vanilla, in the second half what you want to change the text to.

    To clarify you are looking to set the definitions of 'he', 'she', 'his', and 'her' to what ever.

    Those are the only gender specific definitions I found in a cursory search through the source.

    @whu606 Oh, I should have thought of that! Thanks!

    @hgtonight Yes. In another post it was mentioned that someone's set gender was what determined how they were referred to so I thought it was probably deep in the code somewhere (probably beyond my programming comprehension level), but I think whu606's suggestion will work for me.
