left or a right?

Is there is a disproportionate left handedness among the transgendered?

Take Leslie Ann's poll and we will find out.


  1. there is, :) nailpolish application is the HARDEST job on earth!

  2. I have often wondered this myself and had this topic on my list of future blog subjects. I work in IT and have noticed lots of left handed co-workers.

    My left handedness is somewhat strange though, because I only write and eat left handed, but play all sports right handed.

  3. The answer is yes.

    Our three favorite doctors, Blanchard, Zucker, and Lalumière did a study on that and found...

    "The study, published in the July issue of Psychological Bulletin, combined the results from 23,410 heterosexual and homosexual men and women. The results for both sexes were statistically significant; however, the tendency toward increased levels of left-handedness was markedly greater for lesbian women than for gay men."


  4. Painting nails left handed is easy but had to vote right in the end. Think the question should have been on a scale from complete left to right.

    I'm exactly the same handed as Suzanne and I've know other TGals with the same dexterity. I figure it just makes us more uique and special.
