Okay, I know this isn't meant for me, but I'm butting in! I have scyphophobia, fear of jellyfish, and they do NOT sting cuz they're scared! They do not have emotions, so they sting their food to paralyze it, then eat it. I've been stung BAD once. What stung me was HUGE cuz it ranged from my entire leg all the way up to my hand! Falling off a horse and getting a concussion was WAY better than getting stung. I wish I was kidding! You can totally love jellyfish all you want, it doesn't matter, but they don't sting just because they are scared.
