A fear of being seen as behaving like a monkey, ape, or other primate. Usually occurs after getting involved in a stupid emotional argument to the point where you want to fling your own feces at someone.

Taken from: (1) David Foster Wallace's boviscopophobia, the morbid fear of being seen as bovine, and (2) simia-, the latin root for monkey.
Bob's strong simiascopophobia has kept him away from political discussions so long, he doesn't know who the current president is.
