I love this topic. Growing up I realized that I was in a minority. The left handed minority!
I thought of this today when I was in a class earlier and when I looked up from writing I noticed that every other student was writing with their right hand! lol
Growing up I have always had a hard time writing in spiral notebooks, you know if your left handed the metal spiral gets in your way,etc. Though it never really bothered me. The world cant cater to everyone. When I was a teen however I found out that they made notebooks specifically made for left handed people. Ive never bought one though.
Ive realized that throughout the years there are WAY MORE right handed people then left. I will put a poll in this thread and I will be very surprised if bees vote more for left!!
I rarely meet other lefthanded people. So much so that theres a small conversation when I do.:)
Whats neat about my family is that both my brothers and myself are all left-handed. And both our parents are right-handed. There arent many left-handed relatives. So much so that when we met our uncles who we’ve never met before, when he saw us writing left-handed he exclaimed “your laft-handed too”???
Turns out my (new) uncle is also left-handed. And we talked about it for a few minutes. See, a conversation starter. lol
SO bees. Which one are you?Or are u both? My brothers and I can write with both hands however it feels more natural to write with our left. I write with my left and throw a ball with my right. Its weird how it works out.

I am only right handed, I can’t do hardly anything with my left hand.
On the other hand, Darling Husband is right handed, but bats and plays golf left handed.

@Linz1231: I’m the same! My left hand, although necessary, seems pretty useless at times, lol.

I’m right handed but my brother is left handed primarily but a lot of things he can do with his right and so is my nephew.
My mom saids that all babies are born left handed but society teaches them to be right handed!
My niece and 2 nephews they all started out left handed! Now only the eldest nephew is sometimes left handed.

@regberadaisy: I’m pretty sure “all babies” isn’t true.. but there’s probably an element of subconscious training there even if now it’s not as common to “train” kids out of being lefthanded. I mean, a lefty baby with righty parent(s) is going to pick up on visual cues associated with right hand usage. So they might actually be a natural lefty, but develop to a righty because of the environment.
I wonder what the family tree association is? Like how many lefties grow up to 2 natural righties (vs. one lefty, one right,. or both lefty)

@atalante: I know right? lol
Its weird that our parents are both righties and my two brothers and I are lefties. Ive tried to copy my mom a few times, I could do it, but it was so unnatural for me. I can double check with my other relatives, but as far as I know ,that one uncle is so far is the few of my family who are lefty.

hehe I probably should have said my mom has a “theory” that all babies are born lefties. In my family there is usually one lefty in every family so there probably is some family tree association as to why all babies in my family are lefty when born.

I write left handed, I can write righty if i have to. Do everything else, except use scissors, right handed.

I’m left handed! Growing up I always payed attention to who was left handed in my classes and I felt like we had some kinda special bond or something because we were in the minority. Haha.
Oh, and I do just about everything with my left hand, except bowl. It’s really weird. I think it’s because I learned to bowl from people who were right handed, so that’s how I did it.

Up until about 5th grade I was ambidextrous, but now I’m just a lefty! A lot of my close friends are lefty, too, which is really weird.. like, the core 6 of us are. As for family members, it’s just my father, Dirty Delete, Future Mother-In-Law and myself (that I know of).
