1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi / Moana "You're Welcome" Parody Song (posted April 23) This is great.

2. Jeff Sessions Rolls Back Obama-Era Drug Sentencing Reforms (posted May 12) "The policies, Holder said, amounted to an 'ideologically motivated, cookie-cutter approach that has only been proven to generate unfairly long sentences that are often applied indiscriminately and do little to achieve long-term public safety.'"

3. Nobody Catcalls The Woman In The Wheelchair (posted 2016) "Despite the best of intentions, the way feminists tend to discuss street harassment as a given reinforces ableist ideas of womanhood, because it’s only a given if your body is seen by the patriarchy as a sexual object. Mine isn’t."

4. You say you’re pro-life, but then you want to limit health care for my disabled son (posted May 9) "On a practical level, the church has not found the $40 an hour for PDN. It has not found the money for ASL classes. It has not found the money for therapies, breathing treatments, for stays in the pediatric intensive care unit. The state had found that money."

5. Christian Mother Mourns Loss of Son She Abandoned for Being Gay (On His Wedding Day) (posted May 15) [content note: parent disowns gay child] "As Tim Rymel points out at HuffPost, what’s especially disturbing about this article is how many Christian commenters aren’t responding with, 'What the hell is wrong with you?' Instead, they’re saying things like 'I am sorry for your loss' and 'We will continue to pray for a change of heart.'"

6. Do you all know there exists a cover of the Ghostbusters theme song by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliot? Because, you need to know. Because it's THE BEST THING EVER.
