Anglophobia: The Fear of England or English Culture

Anglophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear and hatred of England, English culture and anything else that has to do with England.  Like similar phobias it’s easy to assume that this phobia is the result of racism, but only those who suffer from these kinds of phobias really know.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.

Do you suffer from Anglophobia?  Please share your story.  How was it triggered and how does it affect your life?
