macho man

Like many other words in Mexican slang, the word is derived from "chingar" which means "to fuck", which originally meant "to fight" in the language of the Iberian Gypsy. In this case, "chingon" literally means "a big fuck", but not necessarily in a bad way. It refers to a macho kind of man who either has lots of sex or wants people to think he does. Example: Tu eres cabron pero soy yo chingon! (You're an asshole, but I'm a stud.)
