Ladies in tech, have you considered not letting us know you're female?

My own experience

Admittedly fifteen years ago. I was one of two finalists for my dream job as a sysadmin. Decent money, interesting job, travel opportunities. Would they offer it to the candidate with eight years' experience and IT qualifications (i.e. me) or the beautiful girl with massive tits?

Obviously the latter, even though she had no experience or qualifications.

To make things worse, I had to go back to that place umpteen times afterwards to fix their kit.
