    Default Miss, Mrs, Mdm or Ms

    Females are addressed as Miss or Mrs [misus] or Madame. That was in the old days.

    Now, things are sort of simplified already. Question is when did this Ms came to be used and has become more or less standard.

    Actually, Ms used to be the short form of Messieurs.

    Maybe in the near future, there is only one to cover males and females and even those somewhere in between.

    There ya go...

    Mx: (/ˈmɪx/) In October 2011, the title of Mx was added as an option for people who do not identify themselves as either male or female and, therefore, feel a gender specific title such as Mr or Miss is inappropriate and unsuitable for them. It is becoming more widely accepted as a gender-neutral title. [1]

    About the title Mx

    In October 2011, we introduced the title of Mx (pronounced Mix) as an option for people who do not identify themselves as either male or female and, therefore, feel a gender specific title such as Mr or Miss is inappropriate and unsuitable for them.

    We are unable to guarantee that all record holders (i.e. government departments, companies and organisations that hold your personal records) will recognise your new title but we believe many will and in time all will. Initially, the problem will be record holders’ computer systems not being able to accept Mx as a title but when a significant number of people request record holders show their title as Mx a tipping point will be reached causing record holders to reprogram their systems to accommodate Mx as a title.
