Jezebel on why women shouldn't just try to be like men

I liked this.  It turns out, trying to "act like a man" in the workplace only works if a) our bosses will respond to us the same way as they do to men (which we know they don't) and b) if we're willing to accept that the only positive traits to have in one's career are those associated with the "male" gender, (which I'm not).
What do you think about women trying to--or needing to--act like "men" to get ahead?
