You can also turn your home or workplace into a Left Handed Zone.
We are very interested in your ideas on ways to celebrate Left Handers Day and all of the good things about being left-handed, as well as ways to show right-handers some of the frustrations and difficulties we face in everyday life because of the way things are designed for the right-handed majority.
If you have any ideas, please add them as comments below and we will put them all together on a page and in a forthcoming newsletter.
Making a lefties dance in which only the left arm, hand,leg and foot can move. The body and Head only move to the left. The right arm, hand, leg and foot can only move when helped by the left limps
I bought a left-handed pair of scissors from Fiskars which I use in my car. One day my wife, who is right-handed, asked to used them and found out that it was awkward for her. I just shared with that lefties do it in their right mind.
I think left – handed people have strong survival instinct. They are able to cope difficulties with zeal and energy. I realized why I am so clumsy , only after joining this club. And I was surprised to know that since everything in this world is made for right handed person, was the cause of my frustration.
Like hundreds of others I was forced to use my right hand at school in the 40’s. As a teenager I found this useful when I played badminton. I had two forehands! which meant I had a much wider area to hit the shuttle and less need to move so much. I enjoyed scouts as well. at least they shook hands with the left hand.
i think they should make a left handers colour, like green or something…. and on left handers day only left handers should wear it!
Has anyone else noticed that as you walk towards someone in the street, generally you move aside in the same direction, as they are usually right handers, so you end up virtually touching noses! Can be embarrassing!
We need corporate sponsors, small businesses, etc to offer discounts or freebies to all left-handers on that day!
Do other people not likje writing the following letter.s: bdfgq and little k.
Left-handed Day should be during termtime – enabling the promotion of greater awareness of left-handedness amongst children and the extra challenges they face at school.
It should also, as Jim says, be a paid holiday just for lefties 😀
I haven’t been looking much..but thought of this when i was sewing. Is there a sewing machine meant for left handers? I am sure my seams would be much straighter when my hand isn’t upside down trying to pull the fabric through
