Re: officers are called 'sir'

But like I said, it makes no logical sense (even in Starfleet) to call female superior officers "sir", because that word is inherently male. You wouldn't call male superiors "ma'am", so why call females "sir"?
Many lawyers in the U.S. use the title "Esquire" after their names, whether they're male or female, for no apparent reason.
