Androphobia: The Fear of Men

Androphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of men. This phobia results in the avoidance of situations where men are present. That’s pretty much everywhere.

Like most phobias, androphobia is triggered by a traumatic event at a young age. In my opinion I feel that it can be triggered at any age by physical and emotional abuse, rape or any other life changing event that involves a man.

This is definitely one of those phobias that have to leave you not only afraid, but alone. If you don’t want to go where a man will do then you can’t go out to eat, go to the store or to the movies. Everywhere you go, you will run that risk of having to be near a man. I think this phobia will lead to severe anxiety problems.

If you have Anthrophobia let us know what it feels like and how you cope.
