comment Japanese to English : need help with a sentence
Straight "what is the translation of <sentence>" questions are likely to be closed as "too localised". (Add more specifics, as snailboat said, to avoid this). Googling this sentence in quotes should turn up a couple of links where it has already been discussed, e.g. here.

comment Meaning of いくのは
If those links clear it up for you, I think it's probably best just to close this as a duplicate of one of those questions, rather than repeating what's been said elsewhere.

comment Meaning of いくのは
It's not the possessive の. See japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/1322, japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/11566, japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/1395

Or バイト先! We could probably have an entire other question on the differences between vocab words for various workplaces.

comment How important is gendered language in reality?
To be fair to the OP, sometimes very simplified statements are made about gendered language, when the reality is more complicated and involves interactions with location/dialect, situation, social class, age, etc. japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/97 and many of the answers are also relevant (just added the gender tag to it)

comment Which romanization system should I use in my word game?
I'd imagine balancing the letters to be a big issue. That and how you deal with cases such as にょ (nyo) vs んよ (n'yo). There are various kana-based word puzzle games already in existence, but no Japanese version of scrabble.

+1 for allowing more than one system.
