Ran across this article in my internet journeys this morning: Madame, Mademoiselle: in France these are about sex, not respect

While an interesting look at how a languages with gendered pronouns hardwired into them in turn shape gender perceptions, all I'm taking from this article is an impish desire to address random men as "Mondamoiseau." By etymological implication, it would also make a fantastic term of address for a male sub. And if you have more than one of them, mesdamoiseaux is a damn elegant looking plural noun. Tell me I'm wrong. Pity I'm not in the market, but hey, you're welcome if you like the idea and want to run away with it.
