In our modern era of global financial meltdown, cyber warfare, biological weapons and various other unnamed and unknown apocalyptic threats, it is perhaps understandable that there are now literally hundreds of named phobias.
Particularly bizarre phobias are now emerging.  This whacky new generation of phobias reflects our increasingly chaotic world. The more crazy the world gets, the more crazy our fears get.  Let’s consider a few examples:
ZEMMIPHOBIA: FEAR OF THE GIANT MOLE RAT

Okay, the Giant Mole Rat is a little creepy.

GENIOPHOBIA – FEAR OF CHINS

I’m guessing that Fear of Chins is more like fear of multiple chins, not fear of Jay Leno’s chin.

I thought it was normal to fear tyrants, especially tyrants that are 13 ft. tall and weigh 7 tons.

 If you’ve got this one, avoiding reading Faulkner.

REAL PHOBIAS are no laughing matter. They are very disruptive to normal living.  Phobias are symptoms of some hidden anxiety that we don’t want to face, like an insane clown with spider’s crawling over his face. Who wants to see that? I’d rather see Ted Cruz than that clown.
