I think that is becoming the new standard, the term sir applies for both male and female superior officers.

I'm going to assume you're a trooper. In the military, female superiors are addressed as 'sir'.
Neither dark nor light, but both all the same.
Neither hero nor villain, but both all the same.
Neither balanced nor chaotic, but both all the same.
Neither alive nor dead, but both all the same.

In the Republic military, they are. There's a codex entry on Ord Mantell. Read it.
