@Ahiku: Gonna do this asap. Egmont asked for a little analyze why it's "Eve" and why that's important? Okay, they can have that xD

As for Inukashi's 'gendered' words ... I think the problem really is that German just doesn't have any genderless pronouns. They just don't exist (and frankly, Wikipedia says that English was like that in the past too until someone changed the grammatical structure of it; and nearly all languages in Europe have problems similar to those in German ...)
The convention is that the male pronouns are also considered genderless. It's actually the same in English with the difference that the English language has other pronouns you could use (like the 'singular they'). There's actually a really nice Wikipedia article about this.

But "Yves" is horrible ... gonna change that and if it's the last thing I do xD
