People Confess Their Biggest Rational And Totally Irrational Fears

Phobias come in all shapes and sizes. Some may be more rational than others, but rationality is a relative concept. For example, someone with a fear of Giraffes, despite never having met one in real life, might see their phobia as totally rational. But someone else, who fell off a ladder and now has a fear of heights, might see the Girrafe phobia as irrational because it isn't based on anything. But regardless of how objectively rational or irrational the fear is, for the person experiencing it, it is very, very real. People on Twitter are sharing their fears, both rational and irrational, and it's clear that people really do have some strange phobias. What's yours, and is it as weird as some of these?

Men Admit Their Secret Biggest Fears

It's always interesting to think about what causes us to be afraid of something. And why are there so many common phobias? It seems like there are more people who are creeped out by spiders than are not. Clowns are also just plain disturbingto most people, at least in my circle.

Between men and women, women are usually the ones expected to have more fears. This conception is mostly because, well, you know... misogyny. But really it seems unlikely that gender or sex has anything to do with how easily spooked we are.

On a new Reddit thread, men are confessing their most pressing fears. These guys sure deserve an A+ for openness.
