Word of the Week: 'Man Pain'



1. When a grown man has the emotional life of an angsty teenager he is said to be experiencing man pain, especially if he tries to compensate with macho behavior.

There are many causes of manpain ranging from violently killed family member/mentor/lover(s) to a broken heart to absent parental figures or even a history of sexual and/or physical abuse.

Man pain is generally expressed in the following ways: breaking shit, drinking too much, picking fights in bars, becoming a costumed superhero and taking long drives while listening to wailing guitars. For the less violent it can be expressed by remaining stone-faced while flexing jaw muscles, staring broodingly into the middle distance and crying a single tear.
