There are many left handed awareness websites and organizations. But here are some studies and other references:

Anecdotal but still very relevant from left handers who were forced to be right handed and some reverting back to their left hand: https://www.quora.com/What-happens-if-natural-left-handers-forced-to-using-his-right-hand

Hope this all helps.

Forcing a left handed person to be right handed has been proven to cause learning disorders, stuttering, dyslexia (while it isn't too problematic, it can make math and reading a bit of challenge growing up) and other issues. It would be best to let the little one grow up left handed or maybe they will develop cross-handed or be ambidextrous as they grow older to compensate

Most of the time no, until you try looking for new things like drawing tablets or things built without left handers in mind. Guns can be an issue with the cartridge ejector being pretty much in your face.

Muslim countries (most likely due to the fact that they don't have running water in many places and hadiths dictating this, so they eat righthanded and wipe their butts lefthanded) and other old fashioned and superstitious people tend to not like you.

I can use my right hand for some tasks because I have more cross-dominance, but left handed still. Not difficult, just mildly annoying.

When some Americans fail to realize that our elections are determined by electoral college and not a high school popularity contest. Also, Hilary had monetary support from Saudis, Qataris and other tyrannical regimes, who by the way are the regimes that fund terrorism worldwide.

It's all just a circus show to stir up the pot darlin - don't participate. Enjoy the popcorn!
