    No that is not a euphamism.

    - Thought it would be nice to see a thread that DOESN'T have to do with circumcision ... my GOD!

    I've read many pieces on the odd situation that it seems the proportion of homosexual or bisexual people who are left handed is almost twice that of the general population. The proportion of the population that is left-handed is roughly 12% - where it's supposedly around 20% in these groups.

    I include myself in the BI/LH group.

    So my question is, how you identify sexually (let's not get into this "I don't label myself" bs and for the sake of information... if you had a gun to your head) and what hand you write with.

    Like many lefties, to fit in, I play most sports right handed. But I write and draw left-handed.

    ...GO!

    Sorry got timed out - so just state your stats.

    Interesting. I'm gay and left-handed, and so are a lot of my friends.

    In general, I don't think that handedness reflects one's sexual orientation. There are left-handed straights and left-handed gays. But the number of left-handed gay people is interesting.

    At my strict catholic school left handed children had their left arms tied to their sides with rope and where thrashed with a cane.
    It was thought to be a mark of the devil.
    Gosh I hated those nuns.

    Gay and right-handed for writing and jerking off. Ambidextrous for everything else.

    My partner is gay and left-handed, jerks off with his left-hand, shoots his gun with his left hand (he's a cop), so he's a southpaw all the way.

    I'm not suggesting that what makes you left-handed has some connection to sexuality, but there must be some reason why there seems to be a greater proportion of gay/bi people who are left handed.
