Shouldn't Matthew 5:39 be translated "If someone backhands you on the right cheek, then turn the other also"?

Like today most people back then were right handed.

If a right handed person simply slaps some one facing them, then they slap the other person's left cheek.

For a right handed person to strike someones right cheek, they would strike them with the back if their hand.
