Hmm a lot of those I would say everyone human has, I don't know anyone who would not fear being ridiculed and laughed or raped.

Almost like they pull jumbled letters out of a hat and add phobia to the end lol.

Interesting. I'm pretty sure I have more than half of those.

Saying 'hobophobia' in my head is hilarious for some reason.

How is fear of sexual abuse (contrectophobia) and fear of being raped (virginitaphobia) a bad thing? Isnt everyone afraid of sexual abuse?

The fear itself is rational, but I'd guess that people go to irrational extremes to avoid the possibility of experiencing something that is probably universally negative.

I have 19 of those. Well, that's not counting things like fear of abuse or murder. I think what it means is an overwhelming preoccupation with those particular kind of fears.
