ITT : Non American people act butthurt because America is more important than whatever their country is.

This is not to be disputed. It IS.

It's just common military practice.

I hope you mean in the Star Wars scene. As a soldier for 4+ years, no on in the US Army would dare call a female officer "Sir".

USA =/= entire rest of the world.

And it's largely accepted that the galactic basic version of English is based off of British English.

I'm going to need more proof of this "Sir" business used in other branches of military before I take your word.


Or you could stop being difficult and accept the obviously correct answer clearly in front of you.

And you are?

Oh wait...

Actually, I didn't feel like reading all the way to the end as soon as it became a "my country is better than yours!" contest.

Mostly because anyone participating in them are total idiots by default.

Thats already been brought up but as you can see, no one cares. They just want to continue with "who gotz da best military/navy/E-peens/ect." and if people still use sir to refer to women or not in the real world, even if they have no clue first hand on either side of the subject.

Even if they do have a clue...look at the guy that posted his rank; same narrow stance as the others.
