Most often found in bad fiction (especially fanfiction), wangst is the combination of "wang" and "angst"; it's a condition where a character is supposedly unfortunate and deserving of pity but the real emotion the viewer/reader is supposed to feel is awe at the character's awesome power and l33t sk1llz.

A good writer can write a believable character who has a lot of power but whose life still sucks. A really good writer can even write a believable character whose life sucks as a direct result of having such power. But when bad writers try to combine these two things, the result is often wangst.
She writes all her vampires the same way -- they wangst about how horrible and tragic their curse is but it's like the only actual effect of being a vampire is your sex is always great and you always look amazing when you go out clubbing all night.

Oh man, I can't believe the Gary Stu in this story. He's an unbeaten combat fighter, a gourmet cook and a famous rock star, holds three doctorates, can fire any gun and pilot any vehicle, and now he's wangsting that he has too many women chasing him to try and have his babies!

Someone who opposes the public health practice of vaccination.

Almost always, the reasons for their opposition are rooted in incorrect beliefs about vaccination. This can range from simply having fallen for urban legends about vaccine ingredients or about purported side effects of vaccines, to holding an elaborate conspiracy theory where literally every single doctor and researcher in the whole of the world who has personally studied vaccines and said 'No, they're much safer than the diseases they protect against' has been bought off.

Thanks to crank magnetism, anti-vaxxers are also frequently believers in chemtrails, the New World Order, HAARP weather modification, et cetera.

See flat earther.
That anti-vaxxer started by saying "I just don't think the government should be able to dictate my medical treatment" - but within a few minutes she was ranting about how Pasteur supposedly recanted germ theory on his deathbed and Big Pharma's been covering it up ever since.

A gnoron is a person of decent intelligence who, because of their own willful ignorance, is no more competent at dealing of the world than a moron. A moron cannot help their lack of intelligence; a gnoron, by contrast, is responsible for their own state.
I thought I had read the dumbest anti-vaccination arguments out there, but someone managed to hit a new low: they asked how we knew that the protective effect of vaccines didn't just come from the placebo effect! It takes a real gnoron to come up with a theory that cockamamie.
