宅男 (traditional and simplified, Pinyin zháinán)
- zháinán is a relatively recent addition to Mandarin. The original intended meaning reflected the derrogatory nature of the original Japanese word. However, many men have begun to use zháinán in a self-deprecating or slightly humorous way when referring to themselves.
