Since there never has been a thread on phobias in general and there the most common form of anxiety disorders i decided to make one.

Talk about whatever the **** you want to as long as it involves phobias in some way
Some Phobias

Chemophobia - prejudice against artificial substances in favour of "natural" substances.

Christianophobia - fear or dislike of Christians or Christianity

Ephebiphobia - fear or dislike of youth or adolescents

Gynophobia - fear or dislike of women. LOL (no offense intended)

Heterophobia - fear or dislike of heterosexuality

Homophobia - fear or dislike of homosexuality

Xenophobia - fear or dislike of strangers or the unknown, sometimes used to describe nationalistic political beliefs and movements. It is also used in fictional work to describe the fear or dislike of space aliens

Melophobia - fear of music for all you UGers

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - a fear of long words, is it hard to spot the irony here ?

I hate moths too, but for some reason I can't seem to kill them, which makes me hate them even more...

Nah. Or, I suppose so if phobias factor in dislikes. I don't have an extreme fear of anything in particular, and I won't bother to get into all my dislikes.
#19
Not exactly a real phobia, but being inside a small room with a lot of people makes me uncomfortable (Not claustrophobia because I am fine in small spaces, also not fear of crowds because I'm fine with those in open areas)

Oh yeah and police officers make me uncomfortable. I dunno why, I've never (as far as I know) done anything illegal, but they just make me edgy.

Damn, that kinda sucks

But does it have something to do with the fear of something cutting your veins, or does it just come out of nowhere?

Isn't it to do with the face-paint? And the inappropriate touching? To be honest I didn't mind it.

Fear of bridges and the very last step of bleachers, not the next to last but the very top, last step.

I know it's weird.

After a bit of research I found that 15% of US Americans have a phobia of clowns to some degree. Does this mean that 15% of the US population has been molested by a guy in facepaint? O_o

Maybe clowns are just scary. It's a big thing, everyone's scared of clowns. I blame John Wayne Gacy.

And the urban legend about the midget paedo clown. That was fucking hilarious.

I think these two are the major contributing factors in modern clown phobias.
