Just for clarification: Is he sexist for thinking it, or expressing it publicly? Because to call someone sexist for simply finding a person attractive is nonsense, as far as I'm concerned.

I wasn't overly serious, it was more secret reference to the recent Obama incident.

It's funny women try to be as attractive as possible, but when someone notices this it's sexist.

I wouldn't have thought you were, but I wasn't sure. ;)

And I guess I don't pay enough attention to the news in my own country, I have no idea about the incident you mentioned.

Some would say that women are pressured to be as pretty as possible by our patriarchical, misogynistic culture. Some would also say that noticing and remarking first and primarily on a woman's attractiveness is a type of objectification, where her other attributes are implicitly downplayed or ignored and her status as a sex object is implicitly put up as the most important of her features, thus dehumanizing and degrading her.
