Ok - Australia has got a shout.
SoM...not sexist, although in this day and age....
If I was suggesting she was picked for being hot, then that would be sexist. I don't see why commenting on someone's looks (reference being "hottest") is sexist. It's simply stating an opinion about someone. Hell, I wish some people would say I'm sexy, dashing, suave, sophisticated...wouldn't offend me in the slightest. I would even allow the occasional wolf-whistle...I'd lap it up!
As a matter of fact, because of where I'm from (Scotland) and because of my size, I am often referred to as "Shrek". My photo on the company intranet is actually of Shrek. Rather than take offense to this, I find it rather amusing as I can see the "link". Sweaty Sock (people from Scotland being reffered to as Jocks...sweaty socks...see the link?) was another one. Not racist, abusive, sexist or any other "ist" you could attach to it.
