I am left-Handed too but there are so many myths about it, I always believed that Left-Handers were right brain dominant but that has been debated over many years. Ideas and theories change over time.
There is still so much that we don't know about the mechanics of the brain.

"the Telegraph newspaper has printed images of the male brain which shows communication travels from front to back and back to front. Underneath is and image of the female brain, which shows most thoughts travel from one side of the brain to the other side of the brain."

There is no such thing as a 'male brain' or a 'female brain.'  No one can look at a disembodied human brain and tell what sex it is.  Sex differences in lateralization [the connectivity between the right and left sides] are so slight that some large studies find no statistically significant difference at all.  When all is said and done, the only consistent difference is that male brains are, on average, slightly larger [when controlled for body size].  Perhaps we could say that the female brain is more efficient - women can do more with less.

"he didn't want anyone to think that he could not look after his family"

Interesting.  Despite any career interests she might have had, she had to stay home to boost his ego.

Erato my parents were born 1912-1918.   

Actually, my mother joined the local fire brigade as a volunteer, and I remember her using the bone handle of a knife with spit and polish, in order to "break in" the shoe leather lol.

I haven't done any medical study but I did once see on TV the "Milgram Experiment".   My late OH was in the forces and he knew about the experiment too.

<The Milgram experiment was a famous and controversial study in psychology that examined people's willingness to obey authority. Participants in the study were instructed to administer electric shocks to a learner, even when that obedience caused harm to the learner.>

Have a look at this review in "Nature" - probably the most respected scientific journal in the world.

I applaud your defence attempt   :D :D :D

However, according to the old men chatting in the local watering hole - they will never understand women  :D
