As a left-handed person it takes care to write without either smearing on either the paper, my hand, or both. Plus, the world is filled with lots of objects useful only to right-handed people. Like scissors. Lefty scissors are impossible to find when you need them. As a child I had to teach myself to use right-handed scissors rather than struggling with backwards scissors that didn't cut properly. They still feel backwards. Oh, the pains that right-handed people will never know...

@jxself@identi.ca I heard a story once about a professor (sociology I think?) That used left-handed vs right-handed to explain privilege.

Indeed. It's odd that I write with my left but hold, throw, cut, point, type with my right.

Now I wonder if there's a left-handed piano.
