It’s August, so apparently the Disney Princesses are coming out for pay equality:

There are some strained rhymes and lines that don’t quite scan here, but “You want overtime? / I’ve got plenty / But who cares? No big deal, he makes more” is pretty fantastic. Now if only we could have a few more Disney heroines like Tiana, who want to start their own businesses, or Mulan, who’s interested in a military career and her family honor, and who finds a fella’ as a result. Lean in, animated ladies! You can have it all!
