In my opinion there's disadvantage between left-handed people and right-handed people.
when I was young my mom forced me to write with right hand becauce I'm left-handed. I think that is disadvantage for left-handed peole because it is natural habit and people force them to change it. It's unfair for us, left-handed people.
Since left-handed people should be allowed to write with their left hand.

Dear stinks

I think you should change that rule which forces left-handers to write with right hand. Start from you family first, neighborhood, country, and this world at the end.

Psychologically speaking, it's not good for one's mentality to get forced to do something that is against his body nature.

I think that using left hand to do things is really cool! many of my teachers and friends are left-handed. I like that.
There was a period of time when I practised writing in my left hand, but I just couldn't make it, hehe.

not clever but creative

That is right.
Napoleon is left-handed.
In my opinion, left-handed people have some more advantages.
It is clear that mobile phone be popular nowadays. Each person has at least one. Scientists have shown that your brain is affected more when you use your right ear to make a phone call. It is simply to see that the left-handed people usually use their left ear, not the right one.

It might be possible, but refering to my right hand writing, it is not neat at all {-;
And it became worse and worse since I'm used to typing on my keyboard {-:

My son is ambidextrous. We have always thought that's an advantage. But my aunt, when she was young, her parents tied his left hand so could not use it. A barbaric thing.

I dont personally dont think so it makes any difference whether you are right hinded or left hinded or if there is any magneficence to be right handed. However in an article I have read that the right handed live 9 years more than as compare to the left handed people, :!!: Though I dont think so it can have any reality. :-?
