actually this makes me mad--it's not like every illustration depicting a man and a woman differing in some way makes somebody sexist. who said anything about this message being negative or positive?
basically, it's obviously not literal. so calm yourself.
and as a side note: if anything, it could be perceived as offensive to men because it may appear that the woman is brighter due to a greater number of grooves in her brain. the man's simplistic design is strictly for the purpose of contrast.
sigh. I'm not sexist in the least. I was concerned people might take this too seriously though. You're acting as if this t-shirt reads "go cook dinner and take care of the children," or something equally appalling. it doesn't. Men and women possess some cognitive processes that differ. each sex has strengths and weaknesses. this isn't about making any judgments about females being the lesser sex or vice versa. and it also depends on the way you're interpreting the illustration. The message pokes fun at the complexity of women which, if you think about it, has both negative and positive connotations. don't look more into it than it is. it is simply facetious.
