Description

This change removes all gendered language that did not refer specifically
to an individual person or pet. The convention taken was to use
variations on "they" when referring to users and/or human beings, while
using "it" when referring to code, functions, and/or libraries.

Additionally, we took the liberty to fix up any whitespace issues that
were found in any files that were already being modified.
