Missing the birth of your first child?
Well I guess from this that you're assuming reason #11 for not being in IT is 'You are female'. For those of us who are female, actually being able to miss the birth or our first child is a physical impossibility so this is a completely moot point. I'm usually try not to be too 'feminist' but this article is so silly in general that I felt moved to point out the slightly sexist perspective of the writing. The whole piece reads like you just needed to spin out another '10 reasons you're not cut out for a career in....' article to get the set of articles to a nice round 10 or something like that. Misleading and discouraging for anyone reading it thinking they might like to have a career in IT.
