I'm Left handed and proud :) Watching this made me so upset, because of all the little kids who were mistreated and looked down on all because of their hand dexterity. Like what the person below said "Lefties may take over" And it would be sad if we turned the tables and let some of you know what it's like to try and change your hand dexterity.
Watch out righties, we lefties are taking over this world
I'm so happy I'm left handed
I am left handed and I don't have much of a problem using right handed stuff. I will say though people should stop trying to change us left handed people

A Mouse can be switched to function as a left handed mouse.

Lol, i'm glad to be right-handed because it helps in most situations ;D
Actually, I'm glad to be left-handed. In some situations it helps. We have to learn how to use both hands more than right handed people.
