She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing

2014 is officially the Year of Rise

Ta-da! My subtitles for the newly released trailer showcasing Rise as a fighter in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax! Words cannot describe how happy I am to be subtitling something other than a Persona Q trailer for once. Don’t get me wrong, that game looks all sorts of neat and fun. I just thought those character trailers were never going to end. Say what you will about Rise’s rising prominence, but I, for one, appreciate a good change of pace now and again, especially when said pace entails a pretty fun video to subtitle.

As always, the usual disclaimer: I don’t work for Atlus, so some lines could very well change in terms of context and semantics in the final localized version. I know about as much as you do as to when Rise is saying a lot of these lines, which is to say, not at all, so don’t read too in-between the lines too heavily. One line in particular was a bit troublesome to decipher because of background noise; I’m 95 percent confident I got it right, but you know, things happen. As always, I’ll update the subs if necessary via annotations.

No idea when we’ll see each other next time, but it’s been fun, Tumblr!
