    You did not ask about the meaning of the word "phobia". You asked about specific compound words that include "-phobia". Those words have undergone semantic drift.

    Well, homophobia has, it was originally coined as men fearing to be perceived as gay, but islamophobia was coined specifically to denote a dislike, which is incorrect usage.


    Yes, I have mysophobia.

    No, that would be wrong.

    Re: Do you have a phobia?

    Whats the one where you dont travel very far from home? Not really housebound, but close to it. I have that. Im afraid of panic attacks or not being able to find a bathroom (dont ask) which causes the panic attack.

    I dont like spiders either, but I'm not scared of them. Except maybe a huge tarantula.

    Accepted by whom?

    The words awesome and Australian do not belong in the same sentence, unless one is talking about Julia Gillard or Nicole Kidman.

    did you know that when MEU's (Marine Expeditionary Units) pull into ports, Australian women write their phone numbers onto tennis balls and throw them at the ships/into the groups of Marines?

    Maybe agoraphobia. "People with agoraphobia often have a hard time feeling safe in any public place, especially where crowds gather. The fears can be so overwhelming that you may be essentially trapped in your own home." Agoraphobia - MayoClinic.com
