What animal are you irrationally afraid of? Posted on September 11, 2022 by Anonymous What animal are you irrationally afraid of?
feminists are the scariest shit ever... you cant give them the classic "you're right" answer you give girls to shut them the fk up cause they are retarded feminists and u dont wanna give them the satisfaction cause they dont deserve to live. sperm lost, balls->sperm--; sadlyf
Huge insects. Grasshoppers, locusts, mole crickets, centipedes, mantises, stick bugs and all the similar fauna. Once a big locust entered my room, but at that time I had a siberian cat the size of a small dog, and he smashed that horrid insect with his paws.
Rats but isn't a irrationally fear
Cane toads creep me right out.
Flour weevils, I didnt even notice they infested my lucky charms until after I poured the milk and took a bite. I got distracted and when I came back some were floating on top.
Caterpillars and Cnidarians. I really love spiders though
I hate being an arachnophobe because they're really cool and interesting critters, but they terrify the piss out of me.
I can handle them up to about .5cm, which is basically nothing.
Roaches, crickets, grasshoppers
Any kind of medium sized bug that is quick and squirmy and can fly or jump at you out of nowhere. I'm fine with worms, mantises, spiders, isopods and other slow bugs. Beetles are also cool if they aren't too large and can't fly.
I am deathly afraid of mosquitoes buzzing inside my ear. which they love to do
I am deathly afraid of house centipedes.
I know that I'm bigger than they are but holy shit they are so fast and so creepy ;-;
Spiders, that is why I keep tarantulas now.
not fear so much as unimaginable hatred and disgust
>crawls into your pant leg and bites you over and over again and somehow knows how to hide when you pull it up
fuck these things for ever existing
Way too much muscle for how unintelligent they are. Get the fuck away from me.
Yeah I’m not too keen on being near an animal that can kill you with a single kick and is spooked by its own shadow either
I have a simple rule: don't trust any animal you couldn't beat in a fight.
Roaches by a long shot, they gross me out so badly I even cringe while disposing of their dead bodies, though that's only for big ones the smalls ones still gross me out but not to that point.
Also I fear american roaches waay more than german roaches for some reason
There's just something so unholy about them. Even the name puts across how wrong they are.
I'm thankful I've only had to deal with them only once in my life, but I've heard they sound like a human baby when you step on them. Is this true?
garden gnome cricket. They scream when disturbed. I had a few pet ones
You now remember the king kong movie, the ñart where they fall into the ravine with all the bugs
Zebra mussels. My sister got her foot slashed by these dickhead worthless bitches and had to be taken to the hospital where the worthless Indian doctor almost killed her through blood infection because he was a dirty incompetent cunt. Totally ruined the 4th of July and she still has a massive scar. At least my parents sued his ass for malpractice.
Oh also indians
mostly the killing them part, my brain views them as giant juice filled sacks so i can never get the full force into the old peanut butter jar technique to kill because of fear theyre gush everywhere
Any wild animals except foxes and rabbits
Black widow spiders. I know they aren't out to get me, but if one is anywhere I might walk into its web it has to go. I leave them alone if they are out of my way though.
Which is weird because I have an irrational NON-fear of arthropods. I love insects, I love arachnids. Does it have many legs? Bring them to me, I love that shit. Spiders, centipedes, cockroaches, anything, I’ll kiss them if I could, I spent my entire childhood catching bugs.
Just not moths, and only moths specifically. And I don’t fucking understand why.
Of all the bugs out there, from the venomous ones and other shit that can give you blisters just from brushing up against one, I somehow developed an intense irrational fear of moths. MOTHS. Probably THE most harmless bug out there. I don’t fucking get it.
hey im not alone
hello my moth fearing brethren. that thing they do with their scent glands is the freakiest shit i've ever seen
They are the worst.
Pantry moths I understand since they start life as a grub eating your food, other moths are just so cute and fluffy
moths will fly into your ear, not irrational at all
Fun fact: Butterflies can and WILL drink blood if you expose them to it.
You are not afraid of moths.
You are afraid of mothman.
Slugs and centipedes.
I had this incredibly vivid dream as a little kid where I was tied to a chair in my neighbors kitchen and the room was slowly filling up with giant slugs, centipedes. Even since then I have this instant revulsion to slugs.
Dogs when they start barking at me.
Is it irrational to be afraid of rats? They won't kill me directly but I don't want to get bitten and get rat AIDS.
none these days besides roaches which i would say are rational, but i used to fear bulls somewhat
they don't exist in my city but imagine your chest being ran through with two knives really fast
how are matadors even a thing
They grease the bulls eyes so they can’t impale them as easy.
Still, there’s been stories of bulls ripping femoral arteries and ramming through the chest of these guys.
I used to swim a lot as a kid and I had an irrational fear of sharks, piranhas, and crocodiles even though I have literally never swam in a body of water that contains any of that.
Honestly people don’t seem to fear crocodiles anywhere near as much as they should and fear sharks way more than they should
Roaches just make me angry. I squish these disgusting things with my fist when they dare crawl into my kitchen. Same as flies, theyre basically homing midge roaches.
How do you manage to stand their crunchy texture and overall ughness? Like I can't even step on a bug unless I have shoes on, much less use my hand. I'd feel the exoskeleton and almost vomit instinctively. I hate bugs so much but if I know it's nice like a spider I force myself to catch and release it.
Let the flame of your rage fuel you friend.
A certain group of individuals who make up 13% of the population yet commit 50% of the violent crimes
Grasshoppers. Ran into a yard filled with them as a kid and had them jump all over me. All over my face and body, one was over my eye; I was hysterical and my mom said she thought there was at least a hundred of them on me. Had nightmares for the longest time and I've almost caused car crashes because one will jump inside.
>praying mantis hissing
i imagine it was actually shaking its maraca ass at me or rubbing its wings together but hissing is easier to say
friends while i was out on a walk i saw a praying mantis in the middle of the road. i tried chasing it to the other side so it wouldnt get run over but it started chasing me instead, leading it further into the road. i was scared because it was hissing at me but i conquered this fear and grabbed the little guy and ran him over to a bush
Wtf I didn’t even realise a mantis could stridulate, but looking it up apparently they can
My brother is afraid of earwigs because he legitimately thinks they'll try to climb into his ears.
moths and butterflies
I am not afraid bust simply disgusted at insects. Just get a shive trough my body everytime I see one or think about them.
Generally anything from Australia terrifies me. Even the moths over there are like as big as my hand.
How could you be terrified of this cute little baby?
Bogong moths are cool. Where I used to live we'd get a swarm of these at night once or twice a year. Stings slightly if they fly right into your face, and made it awkward going in and out of the house during those nights.
That's Lovecraft level horror. It's sort of cute but ugh. Better than a spider though.
>the moths over there are like as big as my hand.
There's moths like that here in Miami.
Centipedes creep me the fuck out. Big spiders too, but little ones are chill. I have a couple small house spider bros that I leave alone because they keep mosquitoes and flies away.
>Tfw cockroaches are my only friends
I love these little bros like you wouldn't believe
I like when the babies hatch and a bunch of mini roaches are running around in my tub, they are super cute.
OP said irrational.
Reminder that if you're entomophobic or arachnophobic you're a big, ignorant pussy who needs to grow up and read a book.
Snails and slugs even though I love eating escargot. They're very creepy looking to me.
France was a mistake
water scorpions give me the hooglie-booglies
Humans. I hate humans. They eat meat despite the fact it poisons them, they kill for fun and greed, and could start a nuclear war at any time.
You're human too, you dumb gay.
Speak for yourself. I do not identify as a human.
Slugs. I can squash cockroaches without problem but fucking slugs make me squeamish as fuck
cockroaches really do get a bad rep.
>eww they're in my garbage
then clean your house, you nasty motherfucker. and I say that as someone who grew up in the roach infested Charlestown projects. they're attracted to filth. they're detrivores. their natural environment is under rotting logs and leaf litter. if they're in your house it's because you're attracting them.
If you live in an apartment with them there’s nothing you can do. My college apartment had them, we had hardly had any furniture or messes, kept food sealed, cleaned up immediately after cooking, etc. and they would not leave. At most we could get rid of them for a month or so and they would come right back.
This. Only like a couple dozen roaches are pests anyways, plenty are also so pretty most people wouldn’t even realise that they’re roaches
Roaches and insects in general is not the actual problem. It's the deceases and parasites they can spread.
bro, my apartment is spotless, floors washed, no trash, no crumbs, cabinets sanitized, appliances cleaned (and behind them). But my fucking building is infested and these fuckers climb through every crack they find. the small ones are like 2mm max so they can get in through the door, windows, pipes etc. I see these fuckers all the time, and the exterminator came and sprayed, a lot died. But they keep coming back. I fucking hate them so much. Still better than mosquitos.
Fucking roach apologists, I would explode your head like I do with the vermin you love.
Roaches are demons from hell not animals.
Hey american cockroach --
I just free-handled one for the first time
not bullshitting, I came home about 2 hours ago, around 1:30 am
>in the semi dark garage, on the ledge right next to the door I see a dark oval
>I bet that's a cockroach
>turn on garage lights
>I was right
>full-grown american cockroach exactly like OPpic
>cleaning its antennae
>I get my face real close, take off glasses to focus
>this thing is amazing looking, wings are perfect, antennae perfect and doing that pointing in all directions thing
>at this point I'm not going to kill it or even hurt it
>put my hand close, antenna touches, it bolts
>almost flies over the edge, catches itself
>I repeatedly just get my fingers close enough for it to smell me, keeps scurrying away
>then at one point it brushes antennae on my finger and doesn't run, turns around slowly
>I have my other hand next to cockroach, it antennas my hand, and this time reaches out legs to climb on my hand, like it wants to
>I let it, it starts walking up my arm
>keep switching hands
>we never got scared of each other
>finally let it go on the concrete floor
>convinced it could tell I wasn't going to hurt it just by smelling me
You just described exactly how people tame giant centipedes, only that’s usually over a week or so
One time I was just comfy cozied with blanket watching tv and I felt a tickle - upon finding out it’s a goddamn centipede I almost knocked myself out trying to get away from it
I’ll take 3 ticks instead fuck centipedes and all their creepy legs
I only hate the fast moving bastard roaches that enter houses, most native roaches and feeder roaches are perfectly fine for me
They're so harmless and goofy but am still scared
I don't have a problem with spiders
I think its the antennae and invertebrates in general just disgust me
did you know they bite?
Moved into a shitty apartment recently maybe the 3rd night settling in they were fucking falling out of the ceiling vent of my bedroom. I can't stand even looking at them after that
I love spiders, they're awesome.
That and rats
Roaches for sure. And spiders unfortunately. I know they are actually beneficial and that they wont hurt me (at least where I live) but damn if I see a spider I freak. Its that fucking lizard brain shit
My appetite vanishes whenever I see cockroaches.
