An excerpt from Michener's 1963 novel Caravans, page 9: "I was always bemused by the Afghan word for foreigner. When the first Asian students saw this ugly word, with its even uglier connotations, the unaccustomed combination of g and n perplexed them, so they invented an expressive pronunciation which included all the letters, heavily fraught with hatred, envy and contempt. Some pronounced it ferangi, with a hard g, some feranji, others foreggin, but it meant the same."
Those ferangi have strange ways.

A ferangi is a term used to disparage a male who is percieved by other men to be a creep, jerk or pervert.
If there's a girl out there who is seeing or spending time w/ some guy you don't trust, call the motherfucker a ferangi!

The word ferangi comes from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, to classify an alien species, whose male gender, are greedy and sexist pigs!

If you give this definition a thumb down, you're a ferangi!
