There is a combat advantage to being left-handed. If you are left-handed, most of your opponents will be right-handed, and you will be used to how they move. But most of your opponents' opponents will also be right-handed, so they WON'T be used to how you move. This is most commonly observed today in sports.
This would create a kind of equilibrium, where the advantage is bigger the rarer it is, which in turn makes it more common, etc. If left-handedness also comes along with certain disadvantages (and there is evidence it does, healthwise), then you end up with stable minority of left-handers.

>>7793353 Yes this makes sense and this kind of equilibrium has been observed in nature. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolutionarily_stable_strategy There was a good video about this but I can't find it on YouTube. However, we are not yet sure that being left handed has anything to do with genes.
