Left handed people people are weird, or so they say. But then again the world is weird, because anything that is different from what the majority possesses becomes weird. Yet the hypocrisy is that you are told constantly it's okay to be different, and that Diversity makes the world a better place and that is also how God wanted it to be. And that this is why you see many different types of flowers, many types of dogs, many types of people etc... But as soon as you demonstrate an ability that is new to the majority, then they have to label you or diagnose you with suffering from a particular disorder. And so it is for left handed people who are constantly having to explain themselves, and are being looked at in funny ways each time they reach out with their left hand to do something. But we are who we are, and with each characteristic comes different gifts and setbacks. Just like with each profession comes different skill sets and some particular problems. Yet each trade is needed, each person is an essential part of the whole, each gift is vital to the full functioning of Humanity. So why not appreciate Left Handed People, Why do you dislike them and how much do you really know about them?
