Don't go around calling yourself "straight edge". Makes you sound like an idiot who automatically puts himself above other people.

I'm an arrogant, narcissistic ****, and because straight edgers don't enjoy the same things as me, I find them inferior.

Most "straight edge" are stuck up, pretentious ass holes who think they're better than every one else, that's why.
#10
I couldn't give a fuck if you don't like to do the things I like to do. Just don't try to stop me, or act like you're better than me because of it, and we can get along just fine.

edit: And try not to get too mad when I snicker at you for writing X's on your hands at the club.

as long as no one forces thier beliefs, or act "elitist", ive got no problems with it...though, i imagine the guys having wild drink and weed fueled sex havemuch better music festivals... ya know, before the hangover.

don't bring it up, don't say you are straight edge, if anyone passes you a joint, smoke it if you want to, pass it if you don't... but being straight edge without at least trying is ignorance.
#15
I think it's a bit silly to completely remodel your life based on a few hardcore songs. Obviously, there are people who don't smoke, drink, or fuck outside of Hardcore fans (Namely, WOW players), but 'Straight Edge' doesn't really stretch outside of being all hXc.

It's like declaring that you're gay, Jewish, atheist, etc. Wooptie doo! Who cares? Not me. Just don't come onto me/preach your ideals. Personal preference is, well, personal!

Its been years since I've touched drugs and I've been sober since March but I don't consider myself "straight edge". Most of the straight edge people I've come accross think that being edge makes them more hardcore or xcore or whatever and I don't want to have anyting to do with that scene. And x's on the hands looks really lame.
I don't always post in the threads but when I do its random and pointless because I'm ignorant enough to think you care.
#20
because just like the annoying ****ers that go around announcing what kind of drugs they do, and defining them selves as stoners, straight edge people go around announcing that they do not do anything, and define themselves by that.

we dont give a shit what you do and dont do, keep it to your self

and if you hardcore dance your skinny sober ass into me in a concert, there will be hell to pay.

I don't mind people who don't drink, smoke, do drugs, engage in promiscous sex, etc.

What I do mind is people who subject people to irritating speeches, hateful rants or condescending insults simply for engaging in one, some or all of those activities.

Considering not eating meat is a pretty defining factor of vegetarianism, and 'straight edge' is just a name slapped on to something people have been doing for quite a while now by people with silly haircuts and a love for 0-0-----0----0000000---- in their songs, it's not quite the same.

You cant compare straight edge to vegetarian, thats a bad arguement.

straight edge is more of a sub culture thing

TS if you don't want to do something fine don't do it but you don't need to label yourself as "straight edge" and add "X" to everything in some lame attempt to sound cool.

i don't drink, smoke, or do drugs, but i also don't ascribe to the idea of being "Straight-edge." Your health is your own responsibility; if you want to drink, smoke, or do drugs, it's not my place to stop you as long as you're not hurting anyone.

the "straight edge" people I've met are typically presumptuous proselytizers, self-absorbed in their own decision to be drug-free and unable to keep from acting like a morally superior person to anyone who so much as enjoys having a beer now and then. they antagonize others and advertise themselves, and whatever their intentions, they come off as total assholes.

I don't have an issue with people who are straight edge, unless they're dicks, thinking anyone who does drugs is a bad person and beneath them. But really the whole straight edge thing annoys me a bit. So what? I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs, but I don't feel the need to label myself and advertise it to everyone.

Its a lame emo fad.

Fair enough if people want to not drink/do drugs/have sex/breath the same air as everyone else and generally be boring.

But why do you have to fit into some little gay cult and draw xs on your hands?
