Reader’s comment: Long live lefties


In response to Jane Kelly: Will a left-hander still have rights?,

I was about to witter on about westerners having to tolerate ‘backward’ cultures until I realised that it was not long ago that such thoughts permeated our society. My father was left-handed and school/society forced him to favour his right hand. My right hand is dominant although I do write, when it suits, with my left. It is also useful when playing snooker. What I recall from my childhood was my mother’s reaction when I proudly showed her that I could write left-handed. It was though I was in league with the devil.
My children are both left-handed and as you state, thank goodness we have moved beyond such criminalisation.
