Today, my boyfriend found out about my severe phobia of moths. It's so bad that I sometimes pass out. He caught a moth in a jar, and put it on my bedside table. I woke up, saw it, and had a panic attack. He recorded it all and wants to upload it to YouTube. FML

I honestly am getting tired of some guys thinking there is no reason a guy would ever deserve a kick in the balls. If they were that freaking fragile they wouldn't be outside of our bodies. Some dudes seriously deserve it, take the damn risk...

Actually 79 testicles are outside of the body because it is too hot inside of the body and all the sperm would die if they were inside. They are fragile and probably would be inside the body if it was possible, but if they were inside the body they would just be ovaries because all testicles are are descended ovaries.

#54, I wouldn't say it's an overreaction. Perhaps you don't understand phobias very well, but allow me to explain: every time a phobia is triggered, it makes the phobia a little bit more severe, because the brain becomes more and more conditioned to respond to that particular stimulus with fear.
Triggering a phobic attack causes lasting damage, too.

OP, your boyfriend is a dickhead, and clearly doesn't respect you very much. Dump him.

Yeah, a dick move on his part. I hope she pays him back with sweet revenge. Like putting his hand in warm water as he sleeps so he pisses himself at night. Haha.

911: what's seem to be your emergency ma'am?
OP: my boyfriend left me a moth in a jar! He knows they scare me but he did it anyway. I had a panic attack.
911:.... We're sorry but the number you have dialed, is for emergency's only. Please hang up.

This isn't like he put saran wrap in the doorway, I don't see it as a prank. Making fun of a phobia crosses the line. People don't realize how crippling a phobia can be. Your SO should support you in your biggest weaknesses, not post them on YouTube.

#25, a prank to me is something harmless and both can laugh about. Using a phobia against somebody, especially your SO, is going too far. If you know they have an extreme phobia, don't mess with it. Also wanting to put it on YouTube made it worse. I'd dump his ass if he didn't apologize or tried it again.
