Happy International Left-Hander's Day

Posted: Updated:

For all of you lefties out there, this one is for you.

August 13th is International Left-Hander's Day.

It's the day when it's right to be left.

Being left-handed is traditionally viewed as being a negative thing.  South paws struggle every day with scissors, can-openers and other tools that are set up for the rest of the world.

But, experts say it's okay to be left-handed.  There's even an official web site and a store in London that sells all things lefty.

It's not clear why people are left-handed, but it's thought to be genetic.  Only about 10%-12% of people are left-handed.
