My response to your responses (and yes, I am right-handed): 1&2: these “problems” on the original post had to do with the binder rings hurting your hand and making it difficult to write because of their positioning. A lefty has to manoeuvre their hand in between the rings, or has to rest on the spirals, when writing on the right page. A righty has the exact same problem when writing on the left page. Your argument is more appropriately linked (I think) with 5, in regards of having to ‘push’ or ‘pull’ across the page. 7: if by sitting at the end of the table lefties are “away from the middle of the conversation” then the righties next to them must also be if the table is that large; however, in most situations I am assuming it would be more like the picture shown in the original post, and there would only be two or three people per side of the table, in which case it is easy to do and they’re not missing out. 9: not really - honestly, how hard is it to pick a drink up with your right hand? 10: this maybe the case, but how do you fare on a laptop with no side numeric keypad? Also, as a righty, when I do have a side numeric keypad, this means that the majority of letters are on the left hand side - how on earth do I cope with such problems when I need to type quite a few words with my left hand? Also, you can buy numeric keypads that are separate and place this on the left hand side if it really is such an issue, although, most people who do extended pieces of work on computers learn/know how to touch type, and they are taught to do it with their right hand (as I learnt how to use my left hand for typing certain letters/numbers/symbols - as unnatural as it may be to use my left [and I really don’t find it that unnatural] I still am able to do this). 16: why must you pull the cord around the back and then start signing? Surely you could just pull it across the front (as though you would with the right hand) and then tilt the ‘pen’ accordingly in order to write with your left hand. As the cord would be at the top of the pen, it shouldn’t interfere with your writing. No-one in the UK actually has that problem though because a.) we never sign for our card transactions b.) where we have to sign electronically for parcels the cords are i.) in the middle of the device, or just off to the right of centre and ii.) long enough to extend. Perhaps this article shouldn’t have been titled “the 18 worst things for left handed people” but should have been titled “the 18 worst things for left handed people in the US”.
