Re: Is It True That Left-Handed People Are Smarter Than Right-Handed People?: Scientific American Padraic Brown <[log in to unmask]> 2013-09-03 15:05
And as for the Catholic bit, Ray, I never heard that before your message in this thread. I'd always known
it as gay, bearded, left handed and Lithuanian. I do believe there must have been a rather large contingent
of Lithuanian conlagners on the list at the time. Perhaps as many as one. Maybe even an astonishing pair
a call to succour: Javant Biarujia & Salt Publishing And Rosta <[log in to unmask]> 2009-05-29 11:42
Javant Biarujia is the creator of the conlang Taneraic, a rare example of an artlang or personal conlang that achieved public visibility before the creation of the Web. ("Javant Biarujia", indeed, is a Taneraic name.) There is no Taneraic in _Pointcounterpoint_, but the book is the efflorescence of a great glossophiliacal talent, and I highly recommend it. Conlangers of the gay left-handed bearded Lithuanian persuasion may enjoy its lavish homoerotic content, though those who would sooner take their pleasures elsewhere will find plenty else to delight.

The "man from Central Europe" somehow morphed into "Lithuanian", the first
mention of left-handed Lithuanians seems to be here:
I also found a reference to "left-handed bearded gay Luxembourgians". The
earliest reference in the LISTSERV archives to "left-handed bearded gay"
mentions an earlier discussion.

The original lefthanded Lithuanian was Steg Belsky's twin
brother, also a conlanger but not a list member. I guess you
could contact Steg to get the details about that. He had "-

his sig for a long time as a search for "Steg Lithuanian"
will reveal.

It starts with left-handed (not bearded) Lithuanians, in a post ironically
about how the list will dwindle and die without John Cowan's presence:
That appears to be prior to the determination that the list was inhabited
by gay bearded men, which Christophe neatly ties together in the post

wanted to learn Latvian for ages -- I love how it looks, with all those

The best way to think of it is that there is a prototypical conlanger (gay,
bearded, male, left-handed, Lithuanian linguist?), and, regardless of how one
feels one fits in, one's status (well, kind of) depends on how we match up with
