Talk:Fear of bats
|WikiProject Psychology||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
Could someone please explain what would be the correct phobia-word for fear of bats. The article states that chiroptophobia is
- ... an incorrect derivation from the order Chiroptera of bats.
- that would be 'chiropterophobia'.
Who put all these comments into the text? (like "No,not really."/"When?" etc.)they are confusing and also really stupid. Tip: If you need to criticize texts PLEASE do it on the discussion page!!! So, I tried to delete those comments but, as English is not my native language, I ask for someone to reread it and look if I maybe forgot something. Thanks a lot.

That's a good picture for describing the fear's possible roots- but is it bothersome to those with a fear of bats? I just thought it might be, with those wings. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:18, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
- Some people also fear penis and horse and shark. Wikipedia is not censored. `'Míkka>t 16:16, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
The picture deleted: no evidence given that satan's wings are associuateds with fear of bats. Some draw satans and devils with goat's legs, which, you agree, have nothing to do with fear of goats. `'Míkka>t 16:33, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
- Is it generic batman canon or is it just in the last two films?--18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:44, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
King of the Hill
Hank Hill, one of main characters of the series, reluctantly admits that he has a fear of bats from a episode, where he finds himself unable to help his son Bobby Hill building a regatta boat when a bat flew inside his garage. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 04:46, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
