Discriminated, yes; prejudiced, not. No one is gonna judge you for being a lefty.

Cata Cauda is actually the straight man in a comedy duo where the other half is tragically missing. His strikingly unfunny routine is actually a cry of desperation, mourning his stillborn twin that will never join him in riding this form of comedy into obsolescence.

Someone highlight this please^

also yes Cata there is prejudice against "folk of the unclean hand" to this day. A quick search should confirm it.

Various innocuous activities and experiences become rude or even signs of bad luck when the left hand becomes involved. In some parts of Scotland, it is considered bad luck to meet a left-handed person at the start of a journey.[11] In Ghana, pointing, gesturing, giving or receiving items with the left hand is considered taboo or rude. A person giving directions will put their left hand behind them and even physically strain to point with their right hand if necessary.[12] In some Asian countries, holding eating utensils in the left hand is considered impolite.

Malawians cite their views that "the left hand is less skilled and less powerful than the right one" as main reasons for forcing left-handers to convert. Among students, teachers and parents, 75% said the left hand should not be used to perform habitual activities, and 87.6% of these believed left-handers should be forced to switch dominant hands. Parents and close relatives are most responsible for impressing these beliefs upon their children.

back in the day you used left hand to wipe shit, so left handers were considered dirty. you didn't shake someone's left hand, for example, and to extend your left hand was rude!

also there is some crazy hysteria that left-handers are children of devil

ofc this is all old and very not true but i gotta say, being a right hander and all, we're the superior race ;)
