It could have some history attach to Islam when it comes to eating with left hand. What about in Hinduism?

Why people don't allow to eat from left hand here? Look, I've always been a fan of eating from my left hand 'cause half of the time I got something in my right hand(tablet, book, grocery) and on table this habit took over. I always kept my right hand on the right side of the plate while I do all my eating with left hand. It's easy.

But, here it considered to be obnoxious and mannerless.

Well, back in Brazil anyone can do stuff with the hand he wants and no one gives a shit. So I assumed it would be like that all over the world.

And then everyone come talking about equality and freedom of speech and such...

It's because people used to wipe with their left hand while in the loo... before toilet paper was invented or in cultures where toilet paper just isn't that popular... That's why the thieves were punished by cutting off their right hand... to eliminate them from the society because nobody would share food with them.

In the goode olde USSR the toilet paper most probably wasn't an issue... doing things with your left hand was just considered queer and completely non-progressive and undemocratic and offensive to all normal right-handed people... if you were left handed, it was like a sign you were gay or something so all children who were lefties, had to be "converted" by their teachers as early as possible... my bro's mother is ambidextrous because she was born a lefty but was forced to use her right hand at school...

Wow. That was very interesting. So many things suddenly made sense after reading that.

I agree with you on 1st para. That is weird too.

I do however do not agree with 2nd para. May be it has some "taboo" thing in but it doesn't really connect the history here in India. I've seen lot of guys are lefty and always eat with their left hand but then these kinda bunch do collect some eyebrows in local eateries. Again, its weird.

People should have right to eat whichever hands they want to. No need to intefere.

that's why I support America and Western Europe ... there is relative more freedom as in other places even freedom is just an illusion (and I build my fences high)

I think being left-handed was frowned upon in the West as well... at least until the the 20th century... can't really imagine being a lefty in a strict Victorian society for example...

I know it and until 20th century whole world was different there was no classic meaning to west since biggest opposite to west ussr did not exist and east was classic east as Asia
I have heard even wild west gunfighters after injured right hand did not use hi left to use six shooter

but those days you can be outcast as well pirate, gunfighter, post wagon robber and so on

It was frowned upon until not long ago. My dad (65 years old) was originally left handed but was trained to write with his right hand in Catholic school. It resulted in him being ambidextrous while having terrible penmanship with each hand.

^ hell, I'm 29 years old and I even had the Sunday school teachers trying to turn me right-handed when I was a child. It never worked though. Couldn't write worth shit with my right hand and still can't. I remember even in the church there was one of the Sunday school teacher (much nicer than the rest) who had a prosthetic right arm and so it was difficult for her to do her cross with the right hand so she often did it with the left. Even then people were judging her and giving her dirty looks. Christian kindness and all that

I think it's more like "We're normal! You're not! Why can't you be normal? Like every normal person!!! WTF with you being so abnormal?! I hate you!!!"

I bring you a good example from Estonia. It's a very atheist society, yet when you ask them about what they think of homosexuals, they sound like puritans.
Many Estonians have very a very fixed negative opinion about Vladimir Putin... but there's one particular case where they adore him. "The guy fucking knows how to show the faggots their damn place!"

Being religious here is generally viewed as something ranging from "weird" to "abnormal"... and the word "religious" sounds as bad as "gay"...

Relgion/or lack of it can just be a badge people use to elevate their own ego and belittle others whom they consider "outsiders".
In fact you can replace the bad name with anything that a given group of people or a society doesn't like... it can be lefty, gay, religious, atheist, punk, black, republican, socialist etc...
