huh...you know, it actually wasn't that long ago that kindergarten and first grade teachers used to try to make a child switch if they were left-handed. I remember kids just a few years older than me that had gone through that....

I've heard about that happening. Funny, how people get things set in their heads about what's "normal" and what's not, and the damage done trying to fit everyone into the same mold.

Yes, I love to make the left-handedness/gay analogy to point out the idiocy of homophobes. I let Hermione make the analogy in Getting Outed.

I thought the cartoon made a good point. And I remember when they tried to force lefties to use their right hand as if it was somehow "unnatural." It makes quite a good analogy.
