I think you're probably being overly sensitive about it. While it's true that the question allows someone to somewhat discern how much you make, we spend an awful lot of time working in our lives and because of that it just seems very normal to talk about work.
The thing is, when you answer the question, it's not like you have to give a full, detailed answer. When people ask me what I do, I tell them I do computer stuff. If they seem knowledgeable about the subject and inspire me to talk more about what I do, then I'll go into greater detail but it's not so much because I worry that people will be able to judge how much I make but rather that I don't want to talk about the details of work to someone who doesn't really understand or even care about what I do exactly.
