Handedness preference was assessed in 205 boys with gender identity disorder and 205 clinical control boys referred for other reasons. Boys with gender identity disorder were significantly more likely to be left-handed than the clinical control boys (19.5% vs. 8.3%, respectively). The boys with gender identity disorder, but not the clinical control boys, also had a significantly higher rate of left-handedness compared to three independent, general population studies of nonreferred boys (11.8…

TLDR
Rates of non–right-handedness were virtually identical for heterosexual men and women, suggesting that sex differences in handedness may result from higher rates of homosexuality in men, and within groups, handedness showed a number of weak but statistically significant associations with sex-typed occupational preferences, self–ascribed masculinity, and self-ascribed femininity, but not with instrumentality or expressiveness.
Handedness and Birth Order Among Heterosexual Men, Gay Men, and Sao Praphet Song in Northern Thailand.
TLDR
Sexual orientation and gender identity simultaneously is investigated simultaneously via comparison of 282 heterosexual men, 201 gay men, and 178 sao praphet song-i.e., androphilic, markedly feminine males recognized as a "third" gender in Thailand to provide new insights and replicate previous findings in a non-Western sample.
Handedness and developmental coordination disorder in Portuguese children: Study with the M-ABC test
TLDR
Findings reinforce for Portuguese children and particularly for left-handers, the need for further investigation involving longitudinal studies and children of different handedness in the motor coordination domain and highlight the importance of developing physical education programmes that emphasize motor coordination parameters, especially in left-handed children.
Handedness is a biomarker of variation in anal sex role behavior and Recalled Childhood Gender Nonconformity among gay men
TLDR
It is suggested that developmental processes linked to handedness underpin variation among men in sexual orientation and gender nonconformity as well as variation among subgroups of gay men that are delineated by anal sex roles.

TLDR
Neurobiological research suggests that both GID and schizophrenia are associated with altered cerebral sexual dimorphism and changes in cerebral lateralization, and the implications of this association for further research are discussed.
More Than Just Writing: Handedness and Substance Use
TLDR
Significant association was found between handedness and participation in an alcohol and drug treatment program and heightened responses from self-identified left-handed participants in having felt the need to cut down on their substance use and familial substance abuse concerns compared to right-handed respondents.

Interaction of fraternal birth order and handedness in the development of male homosexuality
TLDR
Evidence is found for an interaction between two of the best established etiologic factors in the literature on male homosexuality: fraternal birth order and hand preference and the number of non-right-handed homosexuals with older brothers is smaller than expected.

Sex Differences in Referral Rates of Children with Gender Identity Disorder: Some Hypotheses
TLDR
It is concluded that social factors partly account for the sex difference in referral rates, and girls appear to require a higher threshold than boys for cross-gender behavior before they are referred for clinical assessment.
Sibling sex ratio of boys with gender identity disorder.
TLDR
The results showed that boys with gender identity disorder had a significant excess of brothers to sisters, 131.1:100, when compared with the expected secondary sex ratio of 106:100.

TLDR
The results support the notion that sexual orientation in some men and women has an early neurodevelopmental basis, but the factors responsible for the handedness-sexual orientation association require elucidation.

TLDR

TLDR
The results suggest that homosexual orientation has a neurobiological component possibly related to hemispheric functional asymmetry and the mechanisms associated with homosexual orientation and related neuropsychological characteristics are different between the sexes.

TLDR
The Geschwind/Galaburda testosterone theory successfully predicted differences in feminine sex role identification and behavior between women with anomalous dominance and standard dominance and showed that the anomalously dominance women had a higher masculine sex role Identification as compared to the college normative sample for the Bem.
