Re: This is pathetic!


In some cultures, it was simply rude (and then, of course, became heresy and a control vector and a death sentence) to use one's left hand. After all, one's left hand was typically used for certain elements of personal hygiene, lacking toilet paper, and, in a communal meal setting, using one's left hand to help one's self to whatever was on the table could seriously ruin everyone's dinner.

So favoring the right hand and rejecting those who used their left hands had a more practical purpose once upon a time.
