What is the word for irrational fear of being eaten by a cannibal?
Recently there has been a plethora of news items involving cannibalism. So many that I find it's on my mind even when I'm not reading about it.
Phobia: An extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something
People are randomly assaulting other people, killing them or seriously injuring them and then eating them. Killing and injuring is bad enough, but what's with the eating thing??
Did you know there is no phobia listed for fear of being eaten by a cannibal?
This is a huge oversight on the part of the phobia nomenclature experts. HUGE! The best we can do is phagophobia. This is a fear of swallowing, eating or being swallowed or eaten. Really that's two separate things. What the hell, people?!
