Lina Medina is the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, giving birth at the age of five years, seven months and 17 days. From a remote village in Peru, in 1939 Medina was brought to a hospital by her parents due to increasing abdominal size. She was originally thought to have had a tumor, but her doctors determined she was in her seventh month of pregnancy.

Five years old.
Five.
What a fucking abomination. The man who did that to her should be taken out back and put down like a fucking dog.

The nurse’s face sums it up.

Okay that description is pissing me off
She’s not from a “remote village”, she is from a place called Huancavelica, in the Andes region of Peru
It is suspected that either one of her brothers or her father were the father of the child, but it was never confirmed.
Lina was offered money to be in the New York’s World Fair but refused. She was later offered money by medical researchers in the United States to investigate how she had been able to get pregnant so young, and accepted but the state of Peru refused to let her, because it put her at a “moral risk”. She was meant to get a pension from the Peruvian government but didn’t until 2002, when a gynecologist wrote a book on her case, bringing it back to life.
And finally she was not thought to have a tumor. Based on myths and superstitions from the Andes region, she was thought to have a snake inside, the work of an evil Apu (mountain god). She was later also thought to be like the Virgin Mary, having a child without having intercourse.
And she’s still alive, in a slum in Lima, the capital of Peru.

Thank you for providing more information! As Anya pointed out the original caption seems to be from some “wow, wacky facts!” site that didn’t actually care about Lina’s story beyond how “bizarro” it is.

How do you feel about trans women invading feminist spaces?

daniellemertina:

i don’t get how a woman can “invade” a space meant for women. 

buckybarnzs:

women are hard to animate because they’re actual human people with so much variety while white men with stubble are basically 2D in real life as it is
