Full Story: Revolution 60 is Brianna Wu’s Fetish

Fair Disclosure: I’m not particularly fond of Brianna Wu and any empathy I had for her evaporated after she published petty and vindictive hit piece celebrating Ethan Ralph’s arrest with the stated intent of helping incarcerate him for a decade. I’m also not the most delicate when it comes to trans issues, so this article will be blunt and potentially offensive. I put this out in the open because I want to establish some trust and honesty when I say this:

Revolution 60 is Brianna Wu’s fetish.

Out of all the women closely associated with GamerGate, Wu is the odd one out. Zoe Quinn and Randi Lee Harp feel genuine but also opportunistic. Both of those women have gone on to shake hands with important people: Google, US Congress, the United Nations. Brianna Wu has not, and took two years just to publish an already extant game to Steam. It comes across that Wu’s goal is GamerGate in and of itself, and her immediate whiplash reaction to Ethan Ralph’s arrest is a testimony to that. Revolution 60 is not just a game to Wu, it’s been her dream since she was a kid. Since before she became a woman.


Socially Unconscious comic by John Walker Flynt in 1998.


Eighteen years ago, a 21 year old named John published a comic strips called Socially Unconscious featuring the same characters that appear in Revolution 60. Alisson Holiday is also the main character in both. It’s quite clear that these characters have been floating around in Wu’s head for decades, probably a decade before even this comic, and that’s fine. We all have our fantasy characters, and our fantasy depictions of ourselves.

What’s unsettling about Wu’s fantasy is just how sexualized it is. This character isn’t new. For two decades Wu has had this stick-thin blonde girl with long hair pulled into a heart-shaped pony tail as an idea. She’s drawn it into multiple works. She publicly expresses that she relates to this character the most. Holiday is who Brianna Wu wanted to be when she was John Flynt.


Screencap of Revolution 60’s EULA before it was removed.

In her EULA, Wu expressly and explicitly prohibits pornography being made of her characters. The entire EULA was eventually removed when people noticed this and started encouraging artists to make as much pornography as possible.
This sort of insecurity and protection of her characters is why I’m sure this is a fetish. It isn’t like J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter (which was also a character she had thought about since childhood), this is a personal fantasy, and you are only allowed to appreciate as-is and make no personal addendums to.

This ultimately is what sets Brianna Wu apart from Quinn and Harper. Both of those girls wanted to use GamerGate and the surrounding controversy to further themselves. They wanted to get in, make friends, and get out.

Wu doesn’t care about that. Brianna Wu wants to live the fantasies of John Flynt, to become the slender Alisson Holiday dressed in spandex futurist fetish gear, to live in a society surrounded by intelligent women, and to punish those stupid irredeemable men-folk like Ethan Ralph who disillusion her.


A fetish 20 years in the making.

The analysis of the game being Wu's fantasy is quite interesting and well presented, but I don't quite get the butt hurt in the lede about Wu celebrating Ralph's incarceration?

Ralph is a very unpleasant creep and I can certainly understand why another unpleasant creep like Wu who has been the butt of Ralph's antics took some joy out of his incarceration. As indeed did plenty of Kiwis.

None of us called up the actual court and demanded he be thrown into the Phantom Zone for all eternity.

I don't think even the actual A-Log ever did that to the actual Chris.

I think the mutual unpleasant creep bit comes into play there. Wu is bad and I am not implying otherwise. But so is Ralph and I totally get why Wu went after him at a moment of perceived weakness.. they both play with fire.

"Butt hurt" is an odd way of characterizing an observation about Wu flaring up at the scent of blood in the water like a fucking shark. Even with Nick Bate no one sent in a letter to the District Attorney demanding maximum sentence and no bail.

It was a disclosure, the intent of which explains my disposition. I did exactly that.
