IT’S COME TO THIS: Progressives Accuse the DALAI LAMA OF BEING A SEXIST
If you needed further proof that no one is safe from the outrage of social justice warriors, you’re in luck. The Dalai Lama was recently asked if he could ever be succeeded by a woman and his response has sparked charges of sexism from the left because he suggested such a woman should be attractive.
From the Huffington Post:
Dalai Lama Accused Of Sexism After Saying Successor Could Be Female But Must Be ‘Very Attractive’
The Dalai Lama has prompted outrage after saying that his successor could be a woman – but that she must be “very attractive” or else she would be “not much use”.
Speaking to BBC journalist Clive Myrie, the spiritual head of Tibetan Buddhism was asked about the possibility of a female Dalai Lama
He replied: “Yes, the female biologically [has] more potential to show affection…and compassion.
He continued: “Today in a more troubled world, I think females should take more important roles, and then I told that reporter, if a female Dalai Lama comes, their face should be very attractive.”
Myrie laughed at what he understandably thought had been a joke, asking: “So you can only have a female Dalai Lama if they’re attractive? Is that what you’re saying?”
The monk replied: “I mean if female Dalai Lama come, then that female must be very attractive, otherwise not much use.”
Myrie gave it one more try: “You’re joking, I’m assuming? Or you’re not joking?”
The reply? “No, true!”

I simply don't know how to react when his holiness, the Dalai Lama implies that only attractive people can take on influential roles.
