Virgaphobia

archive.is archive.org

Virgaphobia (or virgophobia) is the fear of stripes [1].

Similarly to trypophobia and Horaphobia, striped imagery is used in nature to denote danger. One example is bright stripes on snakes such as the coral snake. Another is zebra's which might help them look unappetizing to predators. Of course tigers use striped imagery which denotes danger.

The stripes will often be high contrast between either light and dark (can be analogous or monochromatic) and/or colors that are relatively far apart on the color spectrum like complementary, triadic, or tetradic [2].

Virgaphobia is related to chromophobia
