A Majority Of Elementary School Girls Are Influenced By The Images They See In Magazines. Bad News.

I know — we all get it, celeb pictures are Photoshopped. But I still believe that even though we know this, constantly seeing the end product without catching a glimpse of the "before" results in unrealistic ideals.

Welp, the two skateboarding events added to the Olympics this year have wrapped up for the women's teams, and the results are historic in more ways than one.

Japan's Kokona Hiraki, age 12, just won the silver medal in women's park skateboarding, making her Japan's youngest Olympic medalist ever. Great Britain's Sky Brown, who was 12 when she qualified for the Tokyo Olympics and is now 13, won the bronze, making her Great Britain's youngest medalist ever. And those two medal wins mean that two-thirds of the six medalists in the two women's skateboarding events are age 13 or younger.

That's mind-blowing.
