When deploying custom objects to a new installation through the Eclipse IDE the following message was received:

"Cannot specify a gender for a gender neutral language"

Re: Cannot specify a gender for a gender neutral language[ New ]
 The gender field is in the XML file for languages with gender -- that must be the case for the source organization's language, but not the target.
In the same discussion it was written:
          " After changing the language on the preferences I was still getting the errors since the gender info wasn´t erased form the XML definition... I got crazy until I founf that... and then everything worked perfect.

How I can erase the gender info from the XML definition?

You need to look in to your Salesforce EDI.

There take a look at the object and objectTranslation folder.

For the custom objects with the error, you will see that there is a gender XML node.

You can remove this one and retry the build.
