August 13 is National Left-Handers Day!

International Left-Handers Day celebrates the uniqueness of being left-handed and raises awareness about the inconveniences that those who are left-handed deal with.  Many tools and objects are designed for right-handed people, and hundreds of millions of left-handers must adapt. Not only are the disadvantages that left-handers face highlighted on the day, but any advantages that they have are also celebrated.

Of the ten percent of people who are left-handed, more are men than women. In Christianity, left is associated with evil, and at the last Judgement, those who are sent to the left are damned. Even a left-handed compliment has a negative connotation, as it is an unflattering compliment.

It may be tough to use scissors, but if you’re left handed you’re in good company. Famous left-handers include:

  • President Obama
  • President Clinton
  • President George H.W. Bush
  • President Reagan
  • President Ford
  • John McCain
  • Prince William
  • Julia Roberts.
  • Steve Jobs
  • Bill Gates
  • Mark Zuckerberg
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Justin Bieber
  • Paul McCartney
  • Lady Gaga
  • Will Ferrell
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Jennifer Lawrence
  • Buzz Aldrin
  • Jay Leno
  • Judy Garland
