Not Self-hatred[edit]

Autophobia is fear of being alone, NOT self hatred. Sometimes they go together but NOT always.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.68.79.217 (talkcontribs) 01:48, 20 March 2010‎

Autophobia redirect[edit]

As of the date I write, Autophobia redirects to Self-hatred. This is a wrong redirect. Autophobia does not only mean Self-hatred. It is used to mean an abnormal fear of being alone or isolation. Self-hatred is not the same kind of thing at all. It is entirely wrong to suggest otherwise.

The redirect should be removed and Autophobia should be allowed to be an article in its own right.

MEDRS[edit]

To the extent this is a medical article, the sources must meet the quality standards at WP:MEDRS. Refs 4 through 14 do not: published review articles in recognized journals are needed, not web sites. This rule is intended to prevent the vague and unscientific listing of symptoms and treatments for medical conditions--which include the psychiatric. . It seems it would be appropriate to remove all material not sourced by better references--which amounts to removing most all of the article. a DGG ( talk ) 00:49, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
