    Sinister left hander here. :smilewave Boo! :grin:

    It's pretty grim that they were forced to use their right hand to write. :dry: I remember in my old primary school being ushered out of lesson once and being given a load of left handed stuff with braille on... which always seemed oldly specific to me, since they only had braille ones. :/

    But aside from that I don't get much from people about it, except the occasional "wow you're left handed, how can you write like that?"from people and people getting annoyed at me in sports for being on the opposite side to them and having a slight advantage. I hear fencing is a good sport to be in if you're left handed, might try that one sometime. :grin:

    Used to have that happen to me back in school, we'd get a whack on our knuckles for using our left hand instead of our right. Lest the devil make us do bad things.

    But left handed people are sinister :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: (Destra = Right, Sinistra = left, for those who didn't catch that xD)

    In all seriousness, she should know by now what it does to force right handness to someone. Hint: it never goes well.

    *Goes of to write with left hand*

    That makes me angry. Thought that kind of crap died out in the '60s. An uncle of mine had that happen to him when he was a kid. I've got a boyfriend, three siblings, and extended relatives who are left-handed (I'm a righty myself). That teacher's a moron.

    I am cracking up at this!
    No, really, this teacher's license needs to be revoked. I can't even see where this teacher would find a school to work.

    WTF....
    This thread along with the 60s and 70s posts reminded of the something my mom had said a long ago...I hope she wasn't forced in really bad ways such as this article by being told she was sinister or something. She did say something like she is now ambidextrous because someone wanted her to write right-handed. Jesus, that is horrid telling a left handed child that lefties are sinister.

    Where did anyone imply that it was only religion's fault? I understand that some people took jabs at religion, but no one was acting as if they thought it was only religion's fault that this prejudice exists. I don't understand.

    In heraldry something on the left hand side or facing to the left is referred to as 'sinister'

    Other than that all I can say is "What the holey Neanderthal Fu*k"

    I have a left handed sibling. No one ever seemed to make a fuss about it.

    One of my friends was born right handed but her grandmother was left handed. And really wanted a left handed grandchild. My friend became ambidextrous. I asked her to tell me again to make sure I understood that right.

    But the world is designed for the right handed. What side is the mouse for your computer on? The handle for a door? School desks. Writing left-to-right? The world is tailored for the majority. Who happen to be right handed.
