You can get right flush tanks.

Good question. Actually, in the Middle East the left hand is typically used for wiping and therefore considered to be unclean. Never heard of a similar taboo in Western culture, so I'd think it might be something as simple as a right-hander (the majority) is busy zipping/buckling/holding up with that hand while the left is free to flush the evidence.
