Check your privilege, especially if you used your right hand to open this article.

That's according to a presentation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that has gone viral.

Using one's right hand as the primary mode of grappling objects "makes life easier" and gives one more "opportunity" and "advantage," according to the presentation.

It also said being right-handed apparently makes one have a sounder "sense of belonging" in the world. The lecture took place Monday, Newsweek reported. It has garnered more than 2,600 "likes" on a popular Twitter account.

The speaker series is nonacademic programming, and UNC-Chapel Hill does not mandate attendance.

“Fraternity and Sorority Life is hosting an ongoing educational programming series based on eight dimensions of wellness, which range from financial skills to career building," said Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Cassie Hughes Thomas. "Our recent meeting focused on intellectual wellness, and guest speaker Christina Parle presented on the topic of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion."
