Tolerance and freedom of the mind!

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 7, 2015, 11:49 PM
the home of left-handed artists on deviantART


You all may have heard of the brutal terroristic acts in France – 12 people where murdered by extremists because they stood up for freedom of opinion.
This is a big tragedy which hit human rights all over the world very hard. We are with the bereaved and send theme all our love and compassion.


This is an important issue I desperately want to bring up in this group.
This group stands for tolerance, freedom of opinion, creativity of the mind.
We as lefties sometimes experience intolerance and lack of understanding first hand – right handed people sometimes do not understand,
why we have „so much difficulties“ to adapt ourselves around there right-handed world.
They say we are clumsy, cannot write readable, some even believe (even nowadays) that left-handed people are sinister!

Having this tragedy in front of our eyes – people who have been killed because they were standing in for tolerance and freedom of the human being –
I think it is important that EVERYONE OF US remembers what is really important and what makes the human race REALLY stand together as one.

It is NOT war, supression, fight, conformity, intolerance or hatred.

Kindness is the answer to aggressivness.
Tolerance is the answer to intolerance.
Love is the answer to hatred.

Always be sure that whatever you say, do and create changes this world to a BETTER PLACE!

- Arahiriel, leader of The LeftHandedArtists admin team.

Welcome to the group.

Ever felt like a minority?

Well, it's because we are! No one really cares about us, you know. People like Joan of Arc, Aristotle, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Napoléon Bonaparte, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein were born ages ago.
And no one remembers them.
Oh wait.
You do?

That's because left-handed people are awesome.

So we decided to set up what is now a welcome home for all lefties of dA.

We understand how hard it can be to be left-handed. There's a constant barrier, a visible difference between lefties and the rest of society.

But we're not here to lament that uniqueness.

We are proud of who we are.
Are you?


Two of the most famous lads in the world, Bill Gates and Barack Obama, are left-handed.
So you're in good company.

If you are celebrating christmas/the end of the year 2013/beginning of the new year/any other festivity at the end/beginning of the year, are you planning to give gifts this time? 

31 deviants said I try to give something personal to my closest friends/family members. Something selfmade, because I want to show them how much I love them all!
21 deviants said Yes, I think it is a great thing to show your love to your beloved ones.
21 deviants said Wait, isn’t that still far away? ... WHAT, ONLY 7 WEEKS LEFT?!?!?!?!
14 deviants said For me it is more important to come together with the people I love. Presents are nice but not most important on these days.
5 deviants said No, I think all those christmas present giving is overrated and is just a financial thing for big companies and shops and it is very unpersonal.
3 deviants said No, in our country/my culture there is no such celebration at all.

I'm left-handed, but I draw digitally using mouse(which is right handed). Am I still been able to submit arts?

Well, lefties are more common than they used to be! At least 3 of my current coworkers are left handed, and when I was a delivery truck driver there were days when more often than not customers would sign for their deliveries left handed.

I'm right handed/somewhat ambidexterous, and I have heard that means the left side of my brain is dominant!
