4 year old is called evil because being Lefty

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 23, 2015, 1:40 AM
the home of left-handed artists on deviantART

Our member ActsofArt brought the following news and video to our attention.
A 4 year old boy is told he is „evil“ by a teacher, because he is a left-hander!

You can find the article here:

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?! Those things are happening TODAY!

People are getting discriminated because of what hand they use to write, their skin colour, their religious choises, ... The list goes on and on.
This is a very important issue and I cannot say it often enough:
We all should try to be more respectful and open for people who look or think different.
I know that many people are afraid of others who are somehow „different“ – we are trained to „not be different“. To „belong to the crowd“.

But I tell you something:
We only can have more peace and love in this world if we stop fighting against each other and instead try to COME TOGETHER and hold each others hands.
If you want to change this world for a better than try it, immediately:
Try to be more kind and open-minded from today. Try to be more „human“ – in a positive way. Which means: Accept that we are all full of mistakes and everyone of us is a wonderful and important being.
We can only change this world if we start with ourselves.

Thank you for reading this. :heart:

What do YOU think about this issue? Let us know!

If you ever come across an interesting film/article/whatever about left-handedness, just send us an information! We are always interested to get such stuff! :heart:

Thank you again, ActsofArt, 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, Napolťon 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.

Hardcover or Softcover - which type of book (for sketching, writing etc.) do you prefer and why? Tell us in the comments!
