My old man told me that when I was young, I started doing everything with my left hand and he said my teachers "corrected" me and made me use my right hand for everything. Funny when you think about it; the word "corrected" is probably not the word to use. One has to do something wrong before one can be "corrected". I wouldn't say being left handed is wrong. I think one of the things the ole man was looking at was, he was a good golfer (mind you, this is all back in the late '50s- early '60s) and he didn't want me to have to have left handed clubs if I took up golg. Left handed items, I think, were a little more rare back then. Look at Jimi. I'm right handed, but I can write with a left handed pen, hit with a left handed bat, and sometimes use a left handed tennis racket.Well, that's just discriminatory to all we left handers, which I am. Would you buy one you couldn't play yourself?
