Meet the latest oppressed group: Left-handed people

Have you checked your privilege today? Are you able-bodied, cisgender, straight, white or male? Now, you can add something else to that list: right-handedness. A student recently wrote about the lefty struggle, telling people not to “silence” left-handed people who complain that notebooks and desks aren’t geared to them. Doc Thompson and the guys tried to check their privilege on Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”

Darius Miner, a student at the University of New Orleans, wrote for The Odyssey Online last year to call out right-handed people who aren’t checking their privilege. “Don't try to silence a left-handed person who complains about scissors hurting their hand or how uncomfortable school desks are to sit in, or the struggle of having dirty hands from writing in pencil,” he said.

Doc and the guys talked about being right-handed and whether you should try to steer your kids toward using their right hand instead of their left. They wondered if it’s “cultural appropriation” when right-handed people do anything with their left hands. And what happens if you're "transitioning" from being right-handed to being left-handed?

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
