LHC vs Victoria eBook
This is the story of some negative views on left-handedness and the fantastic response to it from Left-Handers Club members around the world.
If you have not seen the full story on this, you can either get it in the eBook below or look at the January 2006 and February 2006 Club newsletters.
In January 2006 the Club received an email from Victoria, an irate left-hander who said, among other things...
"I am left handed and I am really appalled to see your website is ‘campaigning to promote awareness, acceptance and empathy for left-handers’. This is ridiculous."
The whole tone and content of her email really incensed us so we sent her a reply and also did a feature on it in our Club newsletter and asked for members views. We were absolutely amazed at the response it generated, with over 700 members sending detailed comments and responses within the first 3 weeks. In total, we had over 130,000 words of responses - enough to fill a couple of good sized novels! Apart from being very pleased by the level of support, we found a lot of the comments and personal experiences to be uplifting and inspirational, as well as pretty amusing in some cases!
We thought that the feedback we got would be fascinating for any left-hander and particularly for parents of left-handed children so we have put them all together in this eBook for everyone to see (well, the ones that are printable anyway!).
