So, do you know what chingón means?

Chingón is one of the most popular slang terms in Mexico and is a coloquial used to refer to somenone or something  damn cool, awesome or very good.

It is the mexican word for our badass, gorgeous or fantastic and it comes from  the word chingar, that is probably one of the most used words by mexicans, with wide range of variations and meanings.

And according to the Brief Dictionary of Mexicanismos de Guido Gomes da Silva from the Language Mexican Academy chingón refers to someone who is very very good doing something.

The word has historically been used to describe women who are “too aggressive,” while the masculine version of the word “chingón” is used as a way to compliment men. But efforts to reclaim the word and used it as a way to empower women have refresh it  with a new and according-to-the-time meaning, similarly to how the LGBTQI community has taken back the word “queer.”

So now that you know what it means, we can teach you  how to use it when you come to Chingón with your Friends and so you can show them you are very chingón!

When your pal says the dinner is on him  and you want to say to say he is a great friend: ¡Eres un amigo chingón!
