That's the answer right here.
And for those saying shit like "they didn't wipe with the hand". Neither do we today yet we still wash afterwards. They didn't have running tap water and soap back then. So whatever hygiene practices they had it was still safer to eat and do whatnot with your right hand.

I always wipe with my right, and only masturbate with the left, so from my point, she was right. I masturbate with left, because when I begun to do it, I was like "surely noone tuches ther penis with their main hand, that would be gay, when you shake hands."... I was homophobic, when I was young. I also always wash my hands when I have the opportunity. Which I have a lot.

I actually do a lot of weird stuff with my left hand. I drink with my left hand usually, when I was a smoker my left hand was my cigarette hand.

I smoke with my left hand too. Though not cigarettes. My reasoning for that one is that it’s easier for me to operate a lighter with my right hand.

You use water, splash on ass and wipe. Afterwards, you wash and scrub your hands.

With plumbing now available, you can get a good water stream from a pipe to splash on the ass therefore you don't have to wipe with hand too much.

There was a minor scandal in the media in Denmark a few years ago.

The health authority were doing an inspection of a kebab shop, and had to close the place down permanently.

There was NO running water or toilet paper in the employee toilet. Only 2 plastic coke bottles with some water in them.

So these people would shit, splash a bit of water from a coke bottle on their ass, god knows what else, before going back out to hand roll kebabs, without washing their hands!!!

It was fucking gross!

I wonder how many of their customers have had unexplained diarrhea while they were open?

I’ve read somewhere that the handshake started in midievel times with knights. Supposedly it was like a way to show someone that you didn’t have a weapon on you, and with the assumption that most peoples sword hand was their right hand it just kind of stuck to shake with your right hand over your left

49

u/MarkRevan Aug 11 '22 edited Aug 11 '22

These kinds of stories are anecdotes. I know a couple of them. Ancient Greeks used to grab both arms and shake vigorously so that any hidden dagger would fall from their sleeves. Another story is that our modern salute was actually a masonic ritual handshake. We can't really trace a history of the handshake. At different times different people used different gestures for greetings. The open palm salute was the dominant way of hailing someone. We still do this today when we greet from a distance. Handshakes were something rather intimate.

29

u/Soddington Aug 11 '22

I was lead to believe its down to Church superstition. a few hundred years ago the Catholic Church declared left handed people to be in league with the Devil.

There was until very recently this institutional irrational shunning of left handed students, with nuns forcing left handers to write with their right hand. And I'm talking living memory. I've known people raised like that. The word sinister in heraldic terms means the left hand side, and its evil/threatening meaning comes from left being synonymous with evil.

With that kind of weirdo bullshit going on for centuries it just naturally leads to a firm right handed hand shake being the trusted, traditional one.

well she’s not from those “different cultures” so why is he insisting it’s disrespectful and that she should look it up? way overboard

u/Venom-- Aug 11 '22

I like Ariel Helwani's boxing presenting and interviewing. Here, it was a simple misunderstanding between the two of them, him putting his hand out, and she shaking it - but then what he said was inappropriate. He didn't say 'in some cultures shaking hands with the left is disrespectful' or 'in my culture it's disrespectful' he just said 'it's disrespectful' which is an admonishment for her not behaving to his cultural values which are not universal in the USA. Once she shook his hand it was better for him to not say anything, or when she asked, for him to lightheartedly explain. He didn't commit a crime but his response left them both feeling a bit awkward.

96

u/SmokinDroRogan Aug 11 '22

No, I think he was implying he wasn't trying to shake her hand with his left hand and didn't want her to think he was, because it can be seen as disrespectful and doesn't want her to think he was trying to disrespect her. I've been watching Helwani since he was a little baby in the sport and he's absolutely one of the best, most respectful guys out there.

Ariel generally has great rapport with his interviewees, although he can be a bit awkward at times, it’s kind of his schtick, he’s like a fish out of water to a certain extent, the nerdy journalist in a macho sport. But he is very highly regarded nonetheless as one of the best journalists in the mma world, especially for his stance on fighter pay, he’s one of the few media members to stand up to the ufc and advocate for fighters to be paid fairly. He’s also not afraid to ask difficult questions when warranted. All in all he’s a really good dude, and a talented interviewer in most circumstances. Here’s a clip of a typical interview from him: https://youtu.be/pF0Q0Fuue10

12 time MMA journalist of the year. He is quite literally the best in his profession. You really struck out on that one.

These people on the outside have literally no idea what they are talking about. It’s funny to read though. It’s like listening to American redditors on how foreign affairs should be handled lmao

"It's disrespectful"

"Why?"

"Oh, just look it up yourself later. I brought it up and made the situation far more awkward for you but I'm not going to explain it"

Edit: Guys I'm fully aware that there's a reason for it, I'm just pointing out that if you're going to make a point of telling someone it's disrespectful, in front of a camera, the least you can do is answer them when they ask why. Otherwise you just look like an asshole pointing out they're being disrespectful in front of a large audience with no resolution.

u/SovietBear666 Aug 11 '22

Really don't like that guy. He showed up on the Pat McAfee show sometimes, and I really don't understand why people like him. Not funny at all and really inappropriately created an awkward situation for no reason.

24

u/bloomingzonda Aug 11 '22

People like him because he is one of the few sports reporters that will call out the UFC on their shit. He has even been banned multiple times by Dana White. That said he is a fucking weirdo.

I mean, in his defense, he probably couldn't think of a way to say "because we're supposed to wipe our asses with this hand" equally as not weird fast enough. I think his response was "lets just not go there at all" and she had curiosities she needed answers to.

If its disrespectful in some cultures but a sign of respect in others, doesn't that make him a bit of a douche for assuming it's ALWAYS disrespectful? Silly interviewer.

His style of interviewing can definitely be grating and be on the condescending side. He tries to fluster the interviewee with awkwardness and catch them off guard so he can get more info from them. He's kinda slimy.

It's the Poop hand in some cultures. The scouts shake with their left hand though, as it is closer to the heart.

as it is closer to the heart.

Not quite.

Baden Powell, while in Africa, learnt that African tribes carried their shields on their left. By shaking with their left hand, they were dropping their defences. It was a show of trust to the other person to let your guard down like that.

What's up with the vicious comments towards the reporter? Is he known to be an asshole or something? Cause here he comes across fairly normal and chill to me. Yea he made it kinda awkward and he could've just explained what he meant by disrespectful but I don't see how he was being rude, condescending or obnoxious. Overall this clip felt like a sweet, lighthearted moment where he had an innocent slip-up and both went on to have a good laugh about it. But reading the comments you'd think he punched her in the face or something.
