I don't think any people would actually suffer from not being able to proclaim a gender preference via title. Or not having the "respect" of a title, especially one that doesn't convey any rank or credentials like the non-gendered ones do.

There are lots of people, myself included, who're strongly opposed to Mx standing for mixture. The original plan is just for the x to be a wildcard character, because lots of us don't feel like mixtures.
