“If I can hear you chew, I’ve fantasized about your death”

“If I can hear you chew, I have fantasized about your death” is a saying that has been printed on many images. While the statement is meant to be a joke, misophonia (a disorder of decreased tolerance to specific sounds) is a medical condition.
     
“RT @aveuaskew: If I can hear you chew, I have fantasized about your death” was posted on Twitter by JustJ (and others) on February 11, 2013. The tweets by @aveuaskew have been set to private.

Wikipedia: Misophonia
Misophonia is a disorder of decreased tolerance to specific sounds or their associated stimuli that has been characterized using different language and methodologies. Reactions to trigger sounds range from anger and annoyance to activating a fight-or-flight response. The condition is sometimes called selective sound sensitivity syndrome. Common triggers include oral sounds (e.g. loud breathing, chewing, swallowing), clicking sounds (e.g. keyboard tapping, finger tapping, windshield wipers), and sounds associated with movement (e.g. fidgeting). Hated sounds are often repetitive in nature.

I Have Misophonia 鈥 and It’s Not the Joke Everyone Thinks It Is
June 14, 2018

“If I can hear you chew, I have fantasized about your death.” It’s a meme that I’ve been sent more times than I can count, along with viral videos of people losing their minds over someone slurping spaghetti and jokes about how A Quiet Place was written especially for me. I get it; seeing someone get bent out of shape over nothing can be hilarious. But being the one who’s losing their mind? That’s not quite the joke that everyone thinks it is.
