"Dalai Lama's 'sexist' quip ruffles equality activists"* *But, was it a critique or an opinion?

~ Perhaps 'His Holiness' was only remarking on how - in modern western society - the physical attractiveness of women who are either seeking or who are already in positions of power - regardless of the field - is always brought up as if it's a worthwhile topic of conversation (See: "Hilary Clinton")?

"Gender equality campaigners have criticised the Dalai Lama for his suggestion that any potential female successor to his role “must be very, very, attractive”.  In an interview, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists said there was no reason why a future Dalai Lama could not be a woman – but she would have to be good looking otherwise she would be “not much use”."
