Fun facts about Left-Handedness


• Sinistrophobia is the fear of left-handedness or things on the left side.
• While many people are left handed, very few are 100% left handed. For example, many Left handers golf and bat right handed. On the other hand, there is a high percentage of righties who are 100% right-handed.
• Lefties are also called "southpaws". The term was coined in baseball to describe a left handed pitcher.
• Tuesdays are Lefties luck day.
• Only about 10% of the population is left handed.
• During the 1600's people thought left handers were witches and warlocks.
• International Left Hander's Day was first celebrated on August 13, 1976. It was started by Lefthander's International.
• They say everyone was born right handed, and only the greatest overcome it. (he,he,he)
• It is believed that all polar bears are left handed.
• There is a rumor that octopuses have but one right hand. Scientists are diligently studying this issue.

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?

:iconlefthandedartists:

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