Xenophobia is an irrastional fear of foreigners.

I bought a book called Xenophobe's guide to Icelanders in Nice (of all places!)

That's better than the first word that popped into my head, which was "idiot" ;)

First one that came to mind was CC's. Since it has been taken... Ummm.... Errrrr.... Let's see.... Gonna have to say...

Ditto on chickenshit... Or... (sad as it is) Repressed

Isa is really going for chickenshit, but had to think of something quickly - hence the let down...

LOL, the first thing I thought of was "sissy" (or more precisely "freakin' sissy"). I guess we don't have much sympathy of those poor hodophobic bastards.
