I don't understand why people get irrational fears like this... It's a friggen butterfly, what's so scary about it? It can't hurt you, and it generally likes to not be on a human. Get a real fear like arachnophobia. Those little bastards are shitbrix scary.

What do you mean! She is in the hands of a truly skilled doctor. He's already beginning step 1, as soon as you walked through the door! Somebody give him a raise and a cookie.

It might have been a larger facility that did more than just psychology, they might have also done research in other things, like medication, some of which uses bug parts to make.

taxidermy actually refers to mounting a skin specifically (the "dermy" is from dermis meaning skin). since you pin and dry bugs not skin and stuff them its not taxidermy. ;)

Phobias usually stem from some kind of childhood trauma. For example, a moth may have flown into OP's mouth and crawled down her throat. Actually, that's pretty unlikely, but you get the idea.

Than my boyfriend must have had a lot of trauma's in his youth. He's terribly afraid of butterflies, moths, spiders, snails, bees and actually every little insect on this planet.

spiders is my fear :/ some phobias can be taught, for example I was left with my nana when i was really young, she was terrified and I ended up learning the phobia from her the disadvantage of the human survival instinct 

I have a phobia of dogs, especially strays. I was bit as a child. I'm forced to face my fears almost every day because it seems every other person in my neighborhood owns one! I'm still not over it but no longer go into panic mode. Some people can't help what they fear, even if it seems small, like a flying bug!(:

I'm deathly afraid of bees because when I was about 5 years old I was playing outside and a bumble bee got caught in my hair. Small moths aren't that scary but big moths are horrifying.

I'm afraid of spiders, but I don't know why. they're just creepy, and Harry Potter 2 doesn't help (with the tons of spiders attacking Harry and Ron.) I'm also nervous about ovens and fires, since I put my hand on a stove when I was 6 or so.

I have a huge fear of heights. I can't even stand at the edge of a stage without freaking out. Mostly because my luck isn't good and I I always think, "hm.. I'd be the one to fall off the stage and bust my ass". If that makes sense..

Far away butterflies and moths might be pretty but up close their eyes are foreign and weird. I can understand why he would fear those things. I have a fear of spiders and lobsters.

I have a phobia of bees, wasps, hornets, spiders, and huge ass bugs. I would probably be over my bee/wasp/hornet phobia if it weren't for me being stung in first grade.

114: I recall being on one (an escalator) while my family was in a room and I was like 7 years old, and I fell on it and I tried to get back up to go where they were but it was hard for me since I was so short to climb a step I just ended up scraping my legs trying desperately to climb back up while screaming for their help. then my family found me, horrible memory I now fear anything that involves heights including escalators, elevators and such that if I'm alone on one I might get a panic attack.

I have aquaphobia=fear of water I don't know if it was the nightmares from when I was really young but ever since I was like 7 I have been terrified of water deeper than 4 feet (because I'm 5 feet). even when I was like 6 I took swimming lessons and I was always too terrified to get in the water. most little kids are like that but I still have that fear... I don't know why I never got over it

216- I think that one is actually called Bathophobia, meaning it isn't water that scares you, it's deep water. Anyways, the only things I am terrified of are spiders, crickets, and papercuts. I don't know why o.o

if a museum does it though people pay to see it. dead things are good in they let you study them without running away or attacking you. I find taxidermy and bug collections fascinating personally. :p pity I live with someone who is phobic of taxidermy lol

Considering the person typed everything else out, maybe they didn't know how to spell it correctly? He's just sharing his knowledge and helping. Also, notice there's 10 other people who support him for doing so. Maybe you're the one who needs to get over it.

92 - he said he feared for society, presumably because a small part of society are ppl hu tlk lyk dis and admit to having a hyundai. just a tip, but diagnosing him with hyundai-phobia isn't likely to help that impression...
