A special flavor of manly angst, emanating primarily from guys preoccupied with being "real men" (i.e., tough, strong, brooding, some flavor of urban warrior). Primarily caused when the guy feels his masculinity assailed, be it from someone keying his Hummer, a physical imperfection like premature balding, or being confronted by someone who breaks traditional gender roles.
Another variant of mangst is the old brooding, angst-ridden artist bit. What perhaps began as a James Dean impression to score arty chicks imperceptibly morphed into full blown, chronic mangst.
Did you check out last night's episode of Sons of Anarchy? So much mangst!
