Girl, 11, is one of Scotland’s youngest victims of revenge porn An 11-year-old girl has been revealed to be the youngest person in Scotland to have been a victim of revenge porn, police have said. Revenge porn was made illegal in 2017 in Scotland and since then 25 children have become victim of the crime. Young people have even moved schools as they have become so distressed by being victims of revenge porn. Police figures show that out of 131 cases of revenge porn and children, only 16 of the victims have been male. © Provided by Oath Inc.

Parents tend to favor their youngest child (at least according to a 2018 survey). Another survey says that youngest siblings think they're the funniest in the family, too.

YouthGov, a UK-based polling firm, questioned 1561 British adults with at least one sibling in 2015 [PDF]. When asked whether they were funnier than their siblings, 36 percent of oldest children said they were, while 46 percent of youngest children claimed they were funnier.

The poll showed that youngests were more carefree in general: 42 percent stated they were more relaxed compared to their siblings, but just 31 percent claimed to be more responsible. In contrast, 54 percent of eldest children considered themselves more responsible. The survey also found that 17 percent of youngest children felt that their parents favored them more, while only 10 percent of eldest children felt that way.

The reasons behind the differing opinions was unclear, though. “To some extent age itself, rather than family dynamics, may be responsible for differing characteristics,” YouthGov reported.

Birth order isn't everything, after all.
