Familiarity breeds contempt. France has long ties with Morocco, Algeria, Mali, etc. and there are tons of Muslims moving in to France now. But the French have not really responded with open arms.

Found another phobia today on a friend's FB timeline. Atychiphobia, fear of failure, rejection, or not being good enough. That's got to be pretty close to death and public speaking. Maybe it's too similar to social phobia..

Cahill 'islamaphobia' is primarily fed by ignorance. Well that an the wacko parts of the US media. Alot of Europeans have traveled to these countries and/or worked with Muslims. A bit harder to have 'Islamaphobia' if you're in the same fantasy football league as a bunch of em.

Oz suffers from acute "Ameriphobia." As a resident of Saudi Arabia I can testify that my students, friends, exes, roommates etc who have traveled overseas have all felt more welcome in the United States than they have in many European countries. Not that it's a competition, but we can agree that ignorance is a bad thing and I'll do what I can to stop more of it from spreading.

Also, that "US" media being referenced is owned by an Australian national. and the single largest private share holder is a Saudi.

AKE88 and Ozchris have no idea about Europe. Muslim bashing is a staple of parties which are supported by 10-30% of the people in many European countries (and parts of the center parties sympathize with them). Germany's largest newspaper regularly features lies, distortions and gross exaggerations about the influence of Islam, or the crimes of Muslims, on its front page. There are arson attacks on refugee shacks, "Döner murders", and other acts of violence directed against Muslims. Stereotypes are ubiquitous. If we travel to Turkey or Morocco, it's to get a share of the sun and some exoticism, but surely not to learn something about the culture. It often feels as if Muslims (along with everyone who has a darker skin tone) live in different worlds than the so-called 'indigenous' populace. Even those who do work with Muslims often say something like, "That guy is not like all the other ones", or the famous

It depends on the snake and the spider. I welcome most snakes to my garden unless they are venomous. I can tolerate spiders except the black widow and brown recluse, both of which have been in my house or garage. Brown recluse are a real problem in this area. Most of us put out those sticky mouse traps to catch them, especially near our beds since the spiders mostly come out at night. A friend was bitten by one a couple of weeks ago at his house and has a huge area decaying around the bite and he is still really sick. Give me a nice garter snake any day.

What is it with people being afraid of clowns?! I'm sorry, I try to be sensitive to others but I just don't get this one. They're FUNNY! I remember going to a traveling clown show called Aga-Boom when I was 12. I believe the clowns were from Eastern Europe somewhere. Anyway I laughed my head off! And at the circus they've always cracked me up. Their mischief and crazy slapstick antics, and sometimes the way they move, sneaking dramatically around on tiptoes and making huge exaggerated gestures and playing tricks--they're hilarious! And that's exactly what they're meant to be.

Apr 21, 2020
I am not afraid of them, but I have never seen a clown that I actually found funny. I am more the they are annoying category. I kind of get what people mean though, because their behaviour is different than what we are used to, kind of acting like having a social disorder, following you around, laughing when there is nothing funny being in your face. So following different social rules doing thing that usually aren't acceptable. In a circus setting it may be different, but like streetperformers that walk around and mess with people, doing anything to get a reaction, which most of the time is one of extreme uncomfortableness. (sort of like when people stop you to sell stuff haha, please just let pass..yea that's great.. ok gotta go...)

I slightly have it more with dolls though, still would not call it a phobia or even that I am really afraid, but I do find old porcelain dolls rather creepy.

I think they have similarities. In both cases it is something/someone that are very close to humans, but still not totally the same. Totally different is less scary, I wanted to say like who is scared of a tree, but many people are, but again, mainly in the cases they look like actual being, seeming to have faces mouths and crooked hands. So again, as soon as something seems alive, but isnt it can freak people out and people are also freaked out if they don't understand the behaviour ( why is it doing that... that is not a normal reaction in this situation..)

@MasterKenobi, I'm not personally afraid of clowns, but just look up "scary clowns" or something or watch any of the IT films or horrors with clowns in and I think you'd understand more, I know that it's generally clowns in general, but I think it will give you an idea. Also the bloody clown craze a few years ago with the groups going around towns and cities terrorising people and worse dressed up as messed up clowns.

Interesting etymology for the part cob in cobweb, ultimately comes from head. Dutch and german still have cognates kop and koppf (and latin capita/caput and capital still has that meaning in a figurative way in english etc.)

An old name for spider was atorcoppe or attercop. meaning pusshead or poisonhead. Though I see the connection with adder, poisonous snake aswell, so you could perhaps consider it as adderhead. (and just found out welsh calls it pryf copyn)

In Danish and Norwegian a spider is still called edderkop(p).

The current word for spider, comes from weaver/spinner, it spins a web

Hey I have 4 of these! Also what's up with Agoraphobia having 2 definitions? It either means fear of open spaces or a more general fear of inescapable situations.

Hard to believe more people are afraid of thunder than are afraid of dogs or needles. I personally have such an intense fear of the dentist that I have to get doped up before going. Don't know whether fear of dental work is in the top ten, but I suspect many people have it.

Would it be reasonable to assume the number of people who suffer from #6 have increased in the last couple months? Or am I just overthinking things?

When someone says "Am I just overthinking things" the answer is almost always yes.

I put 'closed' spaces instead of confined spaces, as that's how I've always heard it referred as... Could this be counted?

...I do realise later I could've just put the start of the phobia, too, but I thought it wasn't there because closed spaces didn't work.

Idiot! I thought you had to give the "proper" word. I was thinking afterwards, "how did so many people know myctophobia?"

I'm surprised trypophobia (fear of small holes) isn't on here. There are a lot of people that have that fear (including some famous celebrities), including me haha

I'd believe that a lot of people would describe it more as a kind of repugnance than a phobia.

Should accept "space" for "spaces" since they're not only afraid of multiple spaces.

Well where is xenophobia ? :D

To be more constructive I think Aerophobia is more the fear of air or wind than the fear of flying (which is pretty close to Aviophobia).
