Female SHADO officers

This has been floating around my brain for a while.
In the RL US military (as of 10 years ago) calling a female officer  "sir" is considered an insult. Her proper title is "ma'am".

In Destruction, the Sky-Diver captain calls Lake "sir" and she doesn't seem to react to it.

Was this an intended insult that she ignored or didn't pick up on, OR, like Star Fleet, are all SHADO officers, regardless of gender, called "sir" as part of SHADO's culture?
  

If you only have one solution to a problem - you're not trying.
