An Apolitical Post About The Left

How crazy is this?

Roughly twenty percent of the world's population is left-handed, but in a large part of the world, using one's left hand is taboo. I had a professor in college who remembered being told in grade school that writing left-handed was sinful (she's a lefty). Obviously, this was before baseball became the national pastime and south-paws gained some respect.

But seriously, we as a species have nothing better to do than pick on a fifth of the population for something that is absolutely meaningless?

Random trivia, half of the Beatles were left-handed. Anybody care to guess which ones? (before Abby does, because she knows).
