Also, instead of

Attempted something here: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/30756/ .

Looks good!
Small ideas: "What sounds correct?" might be enough for 'yourgender', otherwise it's a bit too much the left column of Special:Preferences; 'gender-unknown' might be "I prefer not to answer" (the previous question).
Of course "He/She edits wiki pages" is not a very realistic example, but there's not much to do about it in a language like English; for the others, docs are good and can always be improved.

Amir: Do you still plan to work on this?
