No.. Males can be visual opalines as well. But only males can be split for opaline. Any female carrying opaline will always be visual opaline.
It is a sex-linked trait.

Yes, purpish pink 'usually' indicates a young male once you have a fledged chick.

Theres an explanation of sex-linked genetics here: Sex Chromosomes and Sex Linkage that may help with your confusion...
