"Coulrophobia is a fear of clowns. The general public has become increasingly aware of this fear in recent years. I believe the word coulrophobia has existed for less than twenty years. I don't know if there is increased incidence of fear of clowns or if there is just an increased perception of its existence."
Coulrophobia as defined by Charlie the Juggling Clown

Coulrophobia is to me, not a phobia but a very rational fear.  Those of us who have been in the presence of a clown know better than to believe any attempts at ballyhooing such information.  Not all clowns are evil.  Only most of them.  It doesn't take long to see it either.  Their eyes will linger on yours just a few seconds past the moment you become uncomfortable.  Then, they smile.  They know that you know then.  This only serves to please them.  It is a shared moment not forgotten by either party.  

They love to stare.  They love to be feared.  Several times in my life I have been unaware of their presence as they sat watching silently.  I was warned by a friend to never look a second time and not to let my gaze linger.  Also, if I were to come upon one performing magic, to turn the other way and not look back.

    lol, i am not quite there yet.  there was some rumor that the devs were going to avoid a clown killer because of such a phobia.  i would guess that to be debunked as of now.

    Maybe it's just because I've never met one in person before, but Clowns just seem like average depressed men in their 40's, not too much scary about that lol

    lol, i would agree.  i actually admire evil clowns a great deal.  i love horror in film, print and music.  i enjoy the idea that some are afraid of them.  i always have pictures like these lying around.

    they are a close relative to clowns.  i suspect you just haven't met the right clown yet.

    I've had a fear of Mimes ever since one trapped me in a clear box. I screamed for help but everyone just thought I was crazy.
