Yes, it’s that time of year again, time to speak up for the one large minority that still has no voice. While it is true that Left Handed People are unlikely to be murdered for their handedness (except in places where they still believe in and kill “witches”), it’s still a form of discrimination that society tolerates.
Yes, discrimination. North America, Western Europe, and Australia/New Zealand may not openly discriminate or look down on being left handed, but the rest of the world still does. It’s considered “rude”, “dirty”, “disrespectful” and other nonsense, and the abuse of forced hand switching still considered “acceptable”.
Yes, abused. The bias against and forced hand switching of left handed children is the original “reparative therapy”, a form of emotional, physical and mental abuse. If you’re against “reparative therapy” being imposed upon LGBTQIA people, why aren’t you against it being imposed upon left handed children? (And if you aren’t against “reparative therapy”, what’s wrong with you?)
Below the fold are several sections on left handedness: resources, campaigns, information, groups, and others. A second post will contain news and scientific articles with commentary.
