Subject[PATCH] #CleanUp non-gender-neutral README

From: Feminist-Software-Foundation
<feministsoftwarefoundation@loves.dicksinmyan.us>

This patch started as an effort inspired by EthicalCode's #CleanUpGitHub
project <http://ethicalco.de/events/cughinfo/> to find and replace
either hateful, hurtful or discriminatory text in GitHub repositories.
The Linux kernel, being the de facto crown jewel of FOSS, deserves
better than to conform to non-gender-neutral pronouns and articles in
its README. This patch rectifies that.

We are the Feminist Software Foundation. We are the inventor of C+=,
world's first feminist programming language
<https://github.com/Feminist-Software-Foundation/C-plus-Equality>). As
our latest effort, we are lending our help to a very popular feminist
phenomenon in the programming scene: purging popular FOSS repositories
of their Patriarchal influences.

As reported by several developers, Linux's kernel development does not
follow the activities on GitHub. Whereby, we are submitting this patch
to the LKML in hope that this will garner a more professional response,
in contrast to the blatant sexism and booing that this patch has
received from the GitHub brogrammer community.
