Why are some people left-handed?

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 4, 2015, 7:20 AM
the home of left-handed artists on deviantART

Our member vijamoga brought up this wonderful video to me about why are some people left-handed and I totally want to share this!
This is REALLY a very interesting information about our handedness and I really recommend that you watch it. :nod:

Here you have the link to the video:

The idea with competition and cooperation sounds very interesting to me and makes sense.

What do YOU think about this? I would love to read your opinions. :)

Thank you again, vijamoga, for bringing this up to us!!! :hug:

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.

Because in some countries it is still an important issue: Did someone ever try to force you not to use your left hand (when you were a kid)? 

69 deviants said No! Gladly!
28 deviants said Yes, but it was not too serious/long gladly, because … (we would like to hear the story in the comments!)
28 deviants said Not myself, but I know someone who was.
12 deviants said Yes, I had to use the right hand for all the important things. :( (Let us know: Are you ambidextrous now, or still a Lefty? Or a right-hander who is not really a right-hander?)

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!
