Dutchphobia: The Fear of the Dutch

Dutchphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of the Dutch.  Those who suffer from this phobia may fear Dutch customs, the way they dress or the festivals that they participate in.
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.
