I mean, I find the British right wing odd (and occasionally very distasteful), but the American right wing really is a frightening thing to me!
I'm also scared of needles (I get panic attacks if I have an injection) and ventriloquist's dummies.
I'm quite a coward in real life; I don't have many phobias but I won't do 'adventurous' things like rollercoasters. I sail a little bit but I don't go out in high winds and usually reef my sail; I hate putting lean on the boat. Nevertheless, I haven't once yet been scared on a horse. It's incredible, and while it's partly testament to how clever my instructors have been at pacing me, it's also been a brilliant experience. I don't normally get the 'woah, slight danger = excitement' thing but a fast canter is really exciting!
