Hominophobia: The Fear of Men

Hominophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of men.  Those who suffer from this phobia may never leave home because they fear they will encounter a man while they are out.  Hominophobia is also known as Androphobia and Arrhenphobia.
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.
