Lack of interest Using "his" or "her" instead of their

I'm not sure about other parts of XenForo, but I know on the Recent Activity, it says "User X set their location as Location Y," etc., even if that user has specified his or her gender. Using "their" should only be used as a fall-back when no gender is specified.

I think this was suggested. Their is a generic term and it doesn't require pulling from a DB/cache in order to specify a gender-specific word in place of it, so IMO it's not really that important.
