I'm just curious to see how many lefties and righties we've got in the community. Did you know that a lot of left-handed people were actually hit whenever they used their left hand as kids? I recommend reading this Wiki article to find out more about the negative connotations and about being left-handed in general. For the record, I think it's all a bunch of nonsense to treat left-handed people that way. I mean, really, it's so messed up.
Right, but my daughter uses both of her hands. Curious to see how that turns out.
My mentally ill mother actually scalded my left hand in burning hot water to discourage me from using my left hand. This was in the 60's. I was about 1 1/2 to 2 years old. She was a terrible abusive woman (and still is) and I know no one advised her to do this. I recently saw pictures of me that were hidden away showing my burned hand. I didn't actually remember it.Asked Grandma why my left hand was always burned when I was a baby- Grandma told me why it was burnt. Nonetheless I still use my left hand. I guess she couldn't burn me anymore when I could talk and maybe tell someone who would lock her up for child abuse. Grandma said she couldn't do anything to stop her. I don't believe that. Just saying; worse things than a spanking or hitting were being done against left handed people.
I'm pretty sure I was left-handed when I was a kid (a wee bit hard to remember back that far), but had it trained out of me. I write with my right hand but can write more neatly with my left hand (although it's slightly more difficult). Can do most other activities ambidextrously.
