Gender Neutral Speech in Other Languages

This is kind of a continuation of my last post about gender neutral pronouns in English.

English is relatively gender neutral in comparison to other languages, which have gendered nouns, adjectives, verbs, everything.  English's gendered third person pronouns are nothing in comparison.  How (if they even do) do other languages deal with gender neutrality?  It would have to be a lot more complicated than in English.

Also, I hear that Hungarian is completely gender neutral (without even a difference between he and she).  Is that true?
