Growing up with a left-handed mom and also raising a left-handed daughter, I’ve know the struggle is real for the lefties of the world.
I remember when I started dating my husband he asked me why I cut my food with my left hand. It had never even occurred to me that it was odd. Though I’m right-handed, I’ve never used my right hand to cut food in my life. My mom taught me how to use utensils, so I guess she just placed the knife in my left hand and that’s how I learned LOL.
I’ve rounded up some facts and memes for all the left-handers out there…I’m sure you will relate!
Facts About Lefties:
- Only about 10% of the population is left-handed. However, 5 of the last 9 Presidents of the United States have been left-handed, which I thought was pretty interesting.
- Among college-educated people, left-handers earned 10 to 15% more than their right-handed counterparts.
- Men are slightly more likely to be left-handed than women.
- Left-handedness is about twice as common in twins than in the general population.
- Left-handers have an advantage in some sports, such as table tennis, cricket and baseball.
