Menstruation beginning two years earlier on average than it did 100 years ago is quite a difference, and it obviously hasn't always progressed like this (that is, unless it's been moving steadily back from Biblical times when people lived 900+ years).

@Jae: My sisters complain about the kid's clothing thing all the time, and rightly so. They do almost all of their clothes shopping by catalog or online.

I agree with the others here that the whole premature maturity situation contributes to teenage pregnancy and may even encourage pedophilia in adults, neither of which benefits society, but what can be done about it?

And, yeah, TK: Fat chicks in tight and revealing clothing is really, really gross (unless you're a chubby chaser ), and I don't hesitate to tell them so (yes, I'm a bastard) as politely as I can, of course.

"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
