Dalai Lama shocks followers by saying a woman successor would only be useful if she were ‘very attractive’

dalai lamaThe Tibetan spiritual leader, a self-declared feminist, stunned a BBC interviewer by saying that any female successor — or reincarnation — would be unsuitable if she was ugly.

“That female must be attractive, otherwise it is not much use,” he said.

…he had told a French reporter that a female Dalai Lama would be a good thing, as she would have “bio-logically more potential to show affection and compassion”.

He then leant forward to Myrie with a smile and added: “Then I told that reporter, ’If it is a female, the face should be very attractive.’”

    The interviewer “retorted: You are joking, I am assuming.”
    Hahahahahahahahaha! The joke’s on you, Slick.

  • Good for you Dalai, you old boner! He does have a reputation for being a bit eccentric (kinda like Prince Philip). I forgive the guy, he’s a real human being.

  • What the hey! Look in the mirror.

    Buddhism is a misogynistic religion.

    He is going to change the motto from “strive without ceasing” to “no fat chicks.”

  • Everyone Else

    what he said is that she would be more useful if attractive

    his main struggle is against china for tibetan independence

    his secondary struggle is to spread tibetan buddhism

    both struggles are aided if the leader is literally attractive
