    Yes! I have a severe raw meat phobia! I can not touch raw meat. I use those yellow dish gloves to pat out hamburgers, stuff a turkey, etc. I think raw chicken is the worst. It's almost as if I can actually hear the bacteria crawling up my arms. Yuck!

    2.) Spiders

    3.) Aliens (Not the Scary Ones from the Movie Alien, but the Little Grey ones with big heads, black eyes and long fingers EEEK)

    I have horrible arachnophobia.

    My cousin owned a bird eating spider when we were younger and it got out while I was sleeping on his floor. I woke up with that nasty thing sitting on my chest just looking at me. My cousin said that it probably just liked the way my chest moved up and down while I was breathing. It freaked me out really bad and I can't stand even the littlest of spiders.

    I'm not really scared of the thought of anything. There are moments when I would be scrared. ie confronted by a bear in the forest, I'm swimming and see a shark, meeting michael jackson. But spiders don't bother me at all. Neither do snakes, raw meat, confined spaces, crowds, heights, etc.

    Snakes. Horribly petrified of them. Alive, dead, movie, T.V., picture can't look at it. If someone ever threw one on me I seriously think I would go into cardiac arrest.

    Honestly, if I ever start to suffer from #1 someone do me and my
    wife a favor and just shoot me

    My biggest phobias are lightning (I remember not getting out
    of my car for 2 hours) and electricity (I once shut off the main circuit
    breaker to change a single light fixture)

    You can take that racism some where else!!! Wether it be a joke or not, still doesn't belong here!!

    Racism?

    No.

    No Race was Mentioned.

    Illegal Aliens are a Part of this Country-

    I did not Specify a Race.

    Do Politicians Get Labeled as Racists when Talking About Illegal Aliens?

    I resent that a Post was Censored Here-

    Especially Since I Did Not Directly State it.

    Regardless- Xenophobia is a 100% VIABLE Phobia.


    What is this Topic About?

    Phobias.

    I Do NOT Suffer from Xenophobia.

    I'm Scared of Aliens.

    The Fact that Someone else used the term "Illegal Aliens" and was CENSORED is Ridiculous.

    "Illegal Aliens" is the Proper PC Term.

    Poor Judgement Was Used In Moderating this Topic.

    Whats Next- The Word Homosexual Will be Censored Out Too?

    I'm not sure if this would be called a phobia. But I freak out whenever I see wet cardboard.

    It actually makes me a little sick to stomach just thinking about it.

    haha, you guys came up with some good ones. I have had a completely irrational fear of drains since I was little. especially swimming pool drains, I will not go anywhere near a swimming pool, much less in it. bathroom drains, bathtub/shower/sink/toilet, make me a bit apprehensive, needless to say I do my business as timely as possible and get the helll outta there.

    1. Needles
    2. Being held down, restrained or stuck in a tight place where my shoulders are immobile.
    3. Cutting or slicing, specially about the face and neck.

    #1 and #3 pretty much rule out any medical dramas, horror flicks and a whole bunch in between.

    I have a mild fear of being stranded even in my own home. I hate not having access to a car to be able to come and go as I please, even if I don't want or need to go anywhere.

    interesting... that's a new one to me!! LOL

    My phobia... CRUNCHY BUGS. Seriously I freak. If I know that they are gonna crunch when stepped on I feel like puking. I can't even look at them.

    I also hate clowns. I went to a state fair once and went in the fun house and some guy dressed like a clown jumped out and I swung at him! LOL. It was pure gut instinct cuz I don't even know how to hit someone and never have. The poor guy was freaked and I had to go apologize. haha

    The term 'Illegal Alien(s)' was censored? Wow.

    However speaking of the INTERGALACTIC-fare of aliens...soon after watching the movie 'Communion' when I was younger; one particular scene from that movie constantly played out in my head as I would lay in my bed. For anyone who has seen the movie; and remembers what's standing in the corner of the room as the couple prepares to go to bed...will know what I'm talking about.

    Clowns

    Deep water

    Heights

    Being in small spaces or feeling crowded (claustrophobia)

    And when I'm in the bathroom I have this irrational fear that someone will be hiding behind the shower curtain so I always have to check before I shut the door!

    I also have an irrational fear of someone hiding in my house when I get home. I think I've watched way too many true crime/unsolved mysteries shows.
