(Newser) – Male lefties of the world have long suffered inconvenience and embarrassment at the urinal, thanks to their underwear. One British store is making up for the indignity with a new line of undies featuring a horizontal, rather than vertical, opening—giving Britain’s lefties an alternative to boxer shorts, Reuters reports. “In our view, this is a vital step toward equality for left-handed men,” says a store rep.

“Left-handed men have to reach much further into their pants, performing a Z-shaped maneuver through two 180-degree angles before achieving the result that right-handed men perform with ease,” he continues. “Switching the opening from vertical to horizontal may sound like a small step, but it's the major breakthrough that many have been waiting for.” (Read more Jay-ZTV stories.)
