Time-Travel: Left-Handers at school

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 6, 2019, 12:29 AM
the home of left-handed artists on deviantART


This short video came to our attention and it is really a pain in the a*** to watch this.

It is cruel to see that - and realize, that not long ago, this was NORMAL for many left-handers at school.
There are even countries where left-handedness is seen as a  connection to the devil or is stigmatized as "bad" or "evil"...

What do you think about this? Are you experiencing some prejudice against left-handedness still today?

We hope you are a lucky left-hander who is allowed to use his/her left hand.

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.

Have right-handers ever told you that it looks creepy if you write with your left hand (on a chalkboard)?
