    Southpaw here. I have a sign at home that says "Everyone is born right-handed, only the greatest can overcome it"

    another leftie here...
    the only people in their right minds are those who are left handed
    or so the tee-shirt says...
    seriously though, I cannot cut properly due to the fact that my kindergarten class only had right handed scissors.......oh the injustices of life!

    and I cant even begin to tell you the amount of velcro shoes I had as a child cuz my right handed parents grappled with how to teach their left handed daughter how to tie her freakin shoes...

    Lefty and proud.

    When I was younger I was just about ambidexterous because everyone around me was right handed and no one knew how to teach me to do anything.

    The older I get the more left handed I get. although, when I play softball, I throw the ball with my right hand but bat left handed.

    I can only shoot my bow right handed.
    Righty here. Interesting that lefties are leading by posted responses, but righties are winning in the poll.

    Although I have good manual dexterity bilaterally.
