Oh, come on. To say that a woman is pretty, it is quite a compliment. To ignore her qualities as a woman, that would be insulting IMHO. ;) Smart, pretty, and world-known expert - guys must have quite a hard nut to crack, or she may already have a happy personal life, so good for her! Loosen up. ;)

Really. The only sexist behaviour in this thread are the men assuming this lady needs protecting. Saying a girl is pretty is not sexist - it's a compliment, and I can assure you, most girls perceive it that way.

I happen to be one of those guys who has always preferred hanging out with women, and I can assure you: women are no different. They talk about us guys in the exact same way, and they sure as hell don't need men "sticking up for them" whenever a guy calls them pretty.

So, I'll just be upfront about it: she indeed looks quite attractive, and there's nothing wrong with stating as such.
