I'm right-handed and never gave "handedness" a thought until I began teaching left-handed 1st graders how to write. Even when I taught guitar at a local music store in the early 70's, I had all my new students playing "standard" guitars, regardless of their handedness. The store simply didn't stock left-handed guitars. If you're a lefty, be glad you live in the USA in modern times -post 1950s. Wikipedia has an interesting article on bias against lefties. This is from that article: "Western countries also attempt to convert left-handed children due to cultural, societal and religious biases. Schools tend to urge children to use their right hands, sometimes against the wishes of the child's parents. In America until corporal punishment was outlawed in schools it was not uncommon for students to be physically punished for writing with their left hands: "I was educated in the USA in Catholic school in the 60s. My left hand was beaten until it was swollen, so I would use my right right [sic] hand" ... "I had a teacher who would smack my left hand with a yardstick every time she caught me writing with my left hand" ... "My fourth grade teacher [...] would force me to use my right hand to perform all of my school work. If she caught me using my left hand, I was hit in the head with a dictionary. It turned out that she believed left handers were connected with Satan."" If you're a left-handed teacher maybe you could share your feelings and experiences about living in a "right-hand is the right/correct-hand" world.
