Gamers Upset New Xbox Head a Woman

Posting on Reddit and other message boards with fuming messages.

After being at Microsoft for 20 years, Julie Larson-Green is the newly appointed head of Xbox. While she gets a promotion, some gamers are upset she's in charge—just because she's a woman, The Atlantic Wire reported. One user said, “Now their (sic) will be apps dedicated to baking and knitting.” The stereotypical views don’t say a lot for the growth of society, but Twitterers have been a bit more positive. Green has years of experience and sexist comments on Reddit were downvoted.
