is there a gender neutral honorific like sir or madam

if not, could I nominate "zire"

let me be clear that the reason I want such an honorific is for intentional silliness

@cwebber I mean, "Your Majesty" and "Your Highness" etc. don't encode gender in English.

@cwebber How about "divine", then? Let everybody think they're a god. :)

@cwebber in which case the Philippines' "mamsir" is probably not right

@cwebber 'Your Grace' when applied to certain Brit titles and Anglican bishops. Your Highness and Your Majesty for Royalty also.

@cwebber "the great" is the only one i can think of without a pronoun

@cwebber "Comrade" is my favorite gender-neutral one.

@cwebber Gentles, if you don't mind class coming into it
