If you had trouble parsing the title of this post, I'm not surprised. It does really mean what it looks like: a five year old mother
. A human mother, to be perfectly clear. Before you scream "hoax!", check that URL again. It's from snopes.com, which is as reliable as it gets (and as usual, meticulously researched). Pretty amazing stuff. Perhaps even more amazing is that the girl started menstruating when eight months old.
