Consecotaleophobia: The Fear of Chopsticks

Consecotaleophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of chopsticks.  This phobia may be triggered by the inability to use them. Another possible trigger is racism towards the cultures that use chopsticks.
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.
