I just saw someone use “chemophobia” now. Bury me.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.
I guess that one’s at least CLOSER to being justifiable. The phenomenon that it’s describing IS an irrational fear of chemicals as a concept.
But, yeah, it’s still an irrational fear born of ignorance rather than illness (probably). Technically the etymology checks out OK, but the conflation of disparate categories by word usage is still way uncool.
