    I still laugh about that. Who in their right mind would FORCE someone to make them food?
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    LOL....since few if anyone HERE is a clinical psychologist, the CONTEXT of the use precludes it is not being used as medical term.

    But go ahead and play grammar cop if you like....

    It is a great distraction.


    PS:

    Terms for prejudice

    A number of terms with the suffix -phobia are used non-clinically. Such terms are primarily understood as negative attitudes towards certain categories of people or other things, used in an analogy with the medical usage of the term. Usually these kinds of "phobias" are described as fear, dislike, disapproval, prejudice, hatred, discrimination, or hostility towards the object of the "phobia". Often this attitude is based on prejudices and is a particular case of most xenophobia.

    Below are some examples:

    Biphobia - Negative attitudes and feelings towards bisexuality and bisexual people as a social group or as individuals.
    Homophobia - Negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).
    Islamophobia - Negative attitudes and feelings towards Islam or Muslims, particularly radical Muslims
    Transphobia - Negative attitudes and feelings towards transsexualism and transsexual or transgender people, based on the expression of their internal gender identity.
    Xenophobia – fear or dislike of strangers or the unknown, sometimes used to describe nationalistic political beliefs and movements.

    If it is not a phobia the term is inaccurate as it is referring to something that doesn't exist. I see no reason to back down on that argument.

    It's like the term wage slavery that is describing something that is a contradiction of terms and is therefore inaccurate.

    Which shows you misunderstood the entire discussion.

    Everyone here asserting it is an actual condition or using the term as if it were anything other than a popular catchphrase. That's been the subject of the discussion you chimed in on.

    Yup, and all of which are inaccurate. It's trying to say something is a phobia when it is in fact not in the attempt to give off the impression someone is a bad person. There is no reason to consider any of the above terms of any value.

    I know, right? It's like purposefully pissing off the drive through order taker when you're giving them your order.

    The discussion going on is between you and I, since you did not quote anyone in the original post I responded to. In this discussion, I have not had any misunderstanding.

    Everyone would include...me....and you.

    PHAIL.
