.. and frequently cleverer, funnier and generally more talented.

I am struggling to think of a counter-example from my personal experience.

Do you mean in the eyes of the older sibling?

I guess I can imagine older siblings feel these sort of jealousies sometimes.

Blatantly not true though.

Jane was better looking than the others in Pride and Prejudice... hth

As the youngest of 4,I'd have to agree grin

Although I'm assuming this is some sort of piss -take,you can't really be serious?

Everyone has a different perception of what's 'attractive'.

Eggs and sperm aren't released in order of least to most attractive, nor is 'attractiveness' a gene.

Your theory is completely implausible. Are you an older sibling and have a bit of sibling rivalry going on perhaps?

The Miliband brothers. Ed (younger) is less good looking than David, arguably less clever and less talented.

I think what younger siblings tend to have is more confidence. Although - there was some report a while back pointing out that most world leaders/industry hotshots are oldest siblings or only children.

Obviously my brood are perfectly equally blessed in looks and intellect although the baby is getting a precocious head start on learning toilet humour from her brothers .

But facebooking people's kids - and thinking of sibling pairs in my friendship groups - I keep noticing that the younger child is somehow more... symmetric and fine-featured. Maybe the older siblings eat all the pies - and their inexperienced parents dropped them when they were babies .

Well I fancy all of the McGanns....

odd rather than unreasonable

Chris Hemsworth is way better looking than Liam.

My mother is much, much more attractive than her two younger sisters.

DH is a million times sexier than his older brother.

However in the interests of fairness I will happily admit that my younger sister is far more attractive than I am.

Hassled shock

The Miliband brothers totally prove my point!

The older one is wonky looking - and intellectually brittle. Ed for me any day of the week!

In the eyes of the parents, probably, my younger sister can do no wrong.

Of course the fact that I'm the one with the degree and a stable job, whereas she's the one who just failed her most recent year of uni is irrelevant.

I'm not jealous of the way my parents treat her as better than me at all.

Tilly333 Sun 03-Nov-13 19:59:15

all in the eye of the beholder.... utter twaddle!

what am I saying? I am the youngest, of course you are right!

AnyWetCuntweaselsInTheFuckerGr Sun 03-Nov-13 19:59:18

The gnome or the teddy bear?

ZombieMojaveWonderer Sun 03-Nov-13 19:59:47

I'm the youngest and my husband says I'm better looking than my two older brothers wink

There's an interesting book on this - Why First borns rule the world and last borns want to change it

Either Milliband would give me nightmares if they were the last thing I saw before I turned off the lights hmm

NotYoMomma Sun 03-Nov-13 20:00:52

Taffeta Sun 03-Nov-13 20:00:55
