It is stated that members of the LGBT group are more likely to be born lefty's.

I seem to have noticed a few other lefties here, especially in the guitar discussions.

I'm really interested in seeing the source of that statement.  :)

I'm left handed btw.

Use my left hand for most things. I use to be able to write with both hands when I started school. Now I am regaing the ability, (looks like a 6yr right now).

Higher a left hander its fun to watch us write

I'm right handed.

Just for full disclosure on how I fit into the study, I'm a trans woman who is attracted to women. Not so much the body, but feminine personalities.

Oddball.

Leftie here...and I'm in my right mind only occasionally.

I didn't know it was being an oddball for being interested in women for feminine qualities. I'm the same way. Not interested in being sexual with GG's. I'm best friends with women and they know that I'm feminine.I guess I'm an oddball too.

P.S. I'm a forced ambidextrous person who got used to using both. Didn't like being beaten up for being left handed.

King Malachite: It's common knowledge. You can look it up with WiKi and if you do web searches on left-handiness and homosexuality or transgender. I will look this up and give you the website.

You where forced to be ambidextrous. While I was forced to be a lefty. Every time we would write in kindergarten I would get told off because I would just grab the pencil in my closet hand. The teacher would go off at me but my letters still looked the same, was told to pick one hand and stick with it.

Oh, I didn't mean I was odd for being attracted to femininity. I mean, maybe I am. I've honestly never given it a whole lot of thought, but I just always sort of assumed most people were first and foremost attracted to physical characteristics. I've never looked at anyone and thought, "Wow, they're hot!" or fantasized about what my "dreamgirl" would look like. For me it was always thoughts more along the lines of, "I want someone who listens to me, understands me. Someone who is deeply in touch with her emotions and who I can form a strong emotional bond with. Someone nurturing, who encourages me and completes me. Someone who just makes my whole life better." That kind of stuff. Hehe~ I'm so glad I found a girl like that. It's definitely a dream come true. :)

This is the first I've ever heard of people being bullied for not having the "correct" dominant hand. Geez... That really disgusts me. People really will use any excuse to hurt others, won't they? *gives you both a hug*

It has something about being on the left hand  of God(Christianity) which means that you are considered evil an on the way to hell.  I'm happy for you because a GG is a trans best friend.

Many other society's  discriminated as well.

It is documented on WIKI.

I'm left-handed. My right arm is nearly useless.

Off topic weirdness, my father and my step father are both left handed. What are the chances my mom has only ever been with lefties?!

I'm left handed. I was, thankfully, born around the time when teachers were no longer allowed to punish for handedness. Mostly I just received evil glares from the teacher who disapproved. Although I did tend to write letters/words/sentences backwards so that didn't really help me out!

I am able to write with both hands, upside down and backwards.  Saw a family friend who was a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman demonstrate this when I was a kid.  He said it was how he would write notes and fill out paperwork for prospective buyers when sitting at a table or desk across from them.  It fascinated me so much, I taught myself how to do it.

What's wrong with your right arm?

My guess your mom picks left handers subconsciously.

No  scientific fact about your MOM.(my opinion)

Adextrous here. I can write legibly with neither hand. However, I'm used to writing with the right, due to habit.
I play guitar left handed, am a right shot in hockey (which is normally for left handed players) and eat in the left handed European style, so that would make me mixed handed.

I'm left-handed and can write a little with my right hand but not so comfortably that I can consider myself ambidextrous.

I am ambidextrous although I've always considered myself left handed since I primarily use it for writting, eating and things like that. A few things I am better at with my right hand and I can pretty much do anything with either.

Some things I do left-handed and others I do right-handed. I think I was supposed to be a lefty because everything I learned to do through trial and error is with my left hand while the only things I do right-handed are the things I was specifically taught. So for example, I eat and pour drinks with my left hand because I figured out how to do that on my own when I was a kid...but I write and use a butter knife with my right hand because somebody physically taught me those things. I chose forced ambidextrous because in recent years I've been trying to reteach myself how to do my right-handed things with my left hand. Some stuff I've been successful with, but others (writing) I'm still working on. I decided to try to just do everything left-handed (my dominant hand, as far as I'm concerned) because sometimes using both hands for different things is a pain in the butt. And even in everyday situations it can get a bit weird...I always end up picking up my pen with my left hand out of natural instinct but then have to switch it to my right hand once I realise. Eh.
