(how debilitating it used to be). Perhaps you've been a whale hunter in a past life and the association is just not doing for you...
by the way, I'm in no way making fun, I know too well what a phobia feels like, and how it's very hard to have a sense of humour about it (at least it was for me).
Your reaction is not surprising to me, haha. I didn't say that to get a serious reaction. I know it's a funny fear(I'm dead serious about it too). One time I told this one kid about it (At the time I didn't know other people liked whales). He was like "WHAT?" and he started laughing his ass off. I wasn't overly offended, but that's the closest I've ever come. lol.
That's when first realized it wasn't a normal fear.
I only rarely have to deal with it though, so that's nice. If it happens to come up on a commercial or something....
Before that I figured everyone hated whales as much as I did. I heard they have really high vibrations though along with dolphins.
They still scare the living h*ll out of me.
