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

Actually, it's quite the opposite:

A man who goes into nursing can expect to do his lumps in the trenches as an RN for a few years, same as everybody else, then his liklihood of being advanced to higher-paid, administrative/supervisory positions SKYROCKETS compared to his female colleagues.

I was even advised, at my college, that if I could swallow my pride and get into a traditionally feminine field - nursing - I'd be making mad bank in a few years and wouldn't have to get my hands dirty at all a few more years after that.
