Sexists Angry That Julie Larson-Green Is Now Head Of Xbox Development

Larson-Green is a twenty-year veteran of Microsoft. She is also the newly appointed head of Xbox development, or more specifically, she is now the executive in charge of the Devices and Studio Engineering Group which oversees the Xbox.

Over at N4G, a sampling of comments which were noticed by Lauren Cartwright said “Now their (sic) will be apps dedicated to baking and knitting,” “A woman… lol,” and “But dem botox lips . . . clearly the best person for the job.” (Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I really don't think this is a sexist thing to be perfectly honest. It's really more an unfair and immature reaction to not knowing just how she'll handle the division as a non gamer. They fear she's going to lead them astray or lose focus. WHich, it could be argued that the people who were in charge and WERE gamers had veered off course to a certain degree losing focus of what's important to gamers.

Let's give the lady a chance is what I say.
Eddie20101  +   435d ago
I think a woman is exactly what they wanted to lead the division so that the average consumer would be more excepting of the casual gaming and media box plans that Microsoft has, I think ultimately that Microsoft wants the Xbox one to be an all in one media box mainly to get more advertising dollars. Microsoft's main goal from the beginning was and is to make money from advertising. They tried with Web TV, didn't work so they moved on with a gaming console that they constantly added media options to and now are adding digital cable and satellite options to. The only reason they are showing any first party hard core games now is because that's what you have to do to get a console off the ground and get a little word of mouth going at the same time. Sure there will hardcore games from third party but I doubt it will be Microsoft's main focus after they get the Xbox One off the ground.

I fear that they got a lady to head the department for their image and to allow them to use her "womanly" expertise to tap into the ever elusive casual market. Tbh that view is probably quite sexist to be fair but going by the last few years, I think it's probably a fair assumption at this point.

Still, the fact that she isn't a gamer and is heading up the gaming department is concerning and that has absolutely nothing to do with her gender.

Sorry but the article is terribly weak and picking at straws. Way to sensationalise something whilst purporting to defend women's rights.

DragonKnight  +   435d ago
I didn't see anyone from N4G say anything like that. And clearly when a journalist, male or female, has to list their "gamer credentials" at the beginning of the article, you know something is wrong.

I think it's incredibly insulting to think that anyone doesn't know that there are female gamers, and a person's genitals doesn't entitle them to special treatment or immediate respect. If the new lead of Xbox had been a man, people would have insulted him for some reason too.

Ridiculous sensationalist article not worth reading.

**EDIT** Here's the Atlantic Wire article. One look at the site and you can see it's clearly a sensationalist site dedicated to making a big deal out of nothing. It's just a couple of angry feminazis doing what they do best, it's site wide.

http://www.theatlanticwire....

Yes, I laughed at some of those comments, funny, hilarious... But bottom line is they are still sexist... And you people wanted Mattrick gone, and you still not happy. Maybe she will simply see the market and understand the obvious, and get it right. Again though, these actions ensure the gaming industry remains immature, never taken serious and we only have ourselves to blame. Last few weeks have been a low point.
DragonKnight  +   435d ago
@Gman: Please stop. It's obvious that some are just trying to take the heat off Microsoft. How? Simple. People don't like the Xbox One. They didn't like how it was revealed, they didn't like how it's been presented, they don't like the consistently bad news that has been coming from the Xbox camp. What better way to diffuse that opinion than by calling everyone who sees that yet another executive, with no background in gaming, a sexist. Now the Xbox One would be protected by any negative opinion because the feminazis would automatically link it to "you just don't like that a woman is heading up the Xbox division."

I could just as easily write an article that took all the positive comments from around the web about her appointment and said gamers aren't sexist and are actually thrilled about this move. It'd be just as big a lie as this sensationalist garbage except not as effective because then the feminazis and manginas wouldn't have anything to complain about.

Stop trying to paint the entire gaming community/industry as immature for the comments of an incredibly small few.

I agree with letting her what to say but were her predecessors really gamers. I am not so sure about Don Matrick and conclude being gamers. Sure as hell miss J Allard to me he was actually a gamer, Peter Moore who probably became a gamer. Meaning the people that started the xbox brand were hungr to compete, willing to bring new game ideas plus created xbox live. When the 360 launched pretty much all the xbox founders were gone replaced by Don Matrick and company nobody complained about it or judge them. That's why I am confused as to why this lady is getting judged so quickly.
rezzah  +   435d ago
Apparently the last boss was a gamer.

If people are making sexists comments, regardless if they are or not one, it still is a sexist comment. Also, this begs the question that if their comments represent a certain point of view then are they not that which they state/believe in? Words give form to our thoughts, so if one makes a sexist comment then they will likely be considered to be one.

Besides the overall answer doesn't have to always be singular to one aspect, it can be a combination of many things. An example is those who think her being a non-gamer is bad, those who are sexists, to those who dislike her as a non-gamer and for being a woman.

It rarely actually is a sexist thing. It's usually just the permanently offended and perpetual victims of the feminist camp that interpret everything as a shot against their gender. In this case, and in most cases, the blogger in question has taken a sample of jokes as a tirade from the putrid heart of a sexist mob of misogynists roaming N4G.com, or something similarly dramatic and frightening.

She's not a gamer. Sucks that she's running a game company. End of this.

Look at Jack Trenton for example, he's been in this industry for 27 years, he started out at Activision and worked his way up to where he is today.

Um. Maybe we cry sexism because these people are not questioning her past qualifications as a person working in the industry (or not, as the case may be) but specifically making sexist comments about how her appearance and sex.

You know what sucks? That women feel we have to justify ourselves at all when we speak by telling people we are gamers.

Edit: You know what sucks more? To know you are limited in your field because of what you are rather than what you can do. It'a a statement when a game company has a high placed woman, instead of just another hiring choice, and that really sucks.

I would passionately agree with your sentiment. All of that really does suck and smacks of sexism at it's best. However, I just don't think that this particular article does itself any justice by sampling a few pathetic comments from N4G, Reddit, and Twitter. Forums are the breeding place for trolls and we know that they all come out for certain topics...like women. That being said, it is unfair to paint her in a certain light just because she is a woman. Give her a chance. It's not like she could do any worse than Don Mattrick for the image of Xbox at this point.

Sexist? Nobody cares whether she's a woman or a man, but rather how well she understands and respects the gaming community.
She is ideally suited for a role in developing systems for casual and mobile users, but the mess she made with windows 8 is indicative that she is going to fail at appeasing the hardcore gamers which consoles rely on.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she is a woman and everything to do with the reality that there were likely far more suitable individuals who might have been placed in charge of Xbox.

And then there's the possibility that this promotion was entirely a result of "positive" discrimination, which is reviled by all thinking humans as simply a new form of the old bigotry.
Articles which try to silence and attack genuine criticism by calling it names like "sexist" among others are no better than those articles which are truly sexist themselves.
Rather than focus on attacking these commenters for being "sexist" this article should have actually focused on explaining EXACTLY why she was the best person for the job.

Pah, sexists being replaced by a new kind of equally biased sexist. We'll never be free from bigotry while this kind of opinion is seen as acceptable among mainstream readers.

Before she started working on Windows 7, she worked for Microsoft Office and had little to zero experience with operating systems.

She learned the audience and adapted quickly to suit their needs.

Not to mention that she probably has a bunch of people called advisors to help her with her job, people who offer different insights into the things she's doing. So anything that happens is the result of an entire team's work and decisions. She just happens to be at the top of that list.

So it shows that some people are pretty unintelligent when it comes to saying that someone whom they do not know is "unqualified" for something.
dennett316  +   435d ago
There are a few sexist types out there - I've seen their idiotic comments - but the majority are more concerned that the Xbox division has been split into hardware and software, and the fact that she was last involved with Windows 8, a product with it's fair share of negative coverage.
The fact that she's responsible for the improvements to that OS - return of the Start button and addressing other complaints - was not well known though. Thing is, MS is in a negative rut of their own making, and they're just going to have to ride it out by starting to show that they can respond to legitimate complaints and criticism.

The sexist losers can be easily ignored, but it'd be wrong to say that people shouldn't have concerns about the new corporate structure.

In some cases, i.e. those quotes, it definitely is sexism. But most people I've seen are just bemoaning the fact that she has no clue about video games and probably isn't right for the job. Then again Microsoft ARE pushing the whole TV / media hub thing so perhaps she'll work for that.

Its like putting a girl in charge of the boys club or vice versa,

and then there are these indecisive characteristics they all have, how well will these decisions be made? Will they be made just to go along with the boys or will they be made for her to prove her point that she's in charge. Which always ends with separation or not having everyone on the same page as far as which direction to go in.

I hope she brings her unique perpective to the development dept. that would benefit all gamers.
