Regarding official left/right handed official percentages, some countries/societies "don't have" left handed people. If this is not taken into account for the total than it'd be slightly higher than reported.
"Don't have" being a rather vague term ranging from not bothering to census for it to it having social stigma and being trained away from it.
True enough But it causes complications by being left handed,My missus can do it properly and shes' right.
I've sucked at everything from sports to handwriting for years, and I always blamed it on being left-handed. I later realized it was merely a result of me being uncoordinated (and half-blind with no depth perception).
I'm ambidextrous lol. when I was in kindergarten my teacher yelled at me because I wouldn't write with the same hand all the time and she told me I had to choose a hand to write with :/
Am I the only one who looked at the thread title and thought subconsciously "left wing vs right wing"? XD
Right handed here

i write with my right hand, i use my right hand to eat with.
my left hand is more hand eye coordinated, i can catch balls in it alot and its alot stronger, dont know why.
There's way more righties than lefties. It's just that people on the forums don't push the right one. Or mmo-champion has 30% lefties :P
As a righty, ive tried using scissors with my left hand and lemme just say wow....i feel sorry for lefties who need to use right handed scissors to do anything. It just wont happen.
I really hate how people attach a negative stigma onto left-handedness. If I recall, being right-handed is named for being correct-handed. Left-handed people have been shunned throughout history, and being left-handed myself, naturally feel very strongly against this mentality.
That being said, I feel too strongly about everything.
It's nothing major, and I wouldn't choose to trade my dominant hand, given the choice.
The left handed people are ______ compared to right handed people argument is bullshit.
I do agree with the latter part of your post however, if you seriously think there is a negative stigma attached to left-handedness today, count yourself lucky that you live in the century you do. Historically you could have been as much as killed under suspicious of being an occultist.
I wish I could find it, but I read a study suggesting lefties managed to survive the ages by being better at killing...or more specifically that righties are less adept at surviving an attack from a lefty. Sinister indeed
You would be trained to fight against right-handed people, and a lot of what you learned wouldn't be applicable against somebody with their weapon in the opposite hand.
i am right dominant in everything except driving (i drive an automatic so idk why i only drive with my left hand)
i am dominant with my left foot however. is that weird?
you are now consciously breathing
