well, i dont really know much about this. but i was talking about it with my friend today,

and well,

ive been a vegetarian all my life except the odd sausage roll at a party or a big mac when im on my way home froma concert from mcdonalds, (which is like 3 times a year)
ive never done drugs,
ive never smoked,
ive never drunk,
but i dont really have a view on sexual relationships or anything.

so what the hell, does that make me straight edge?

or do i have to follow more rules.

to be honest, im not really bothered if im straight edge, just one of those things that bugged me.


lol.

I don't get it are you trying to be straight edge? or trying to label yourself?

either way, don't do it!!

I'd have to agree. In the cheesiest way... straight edge is what you make it. Sounds pretty straight edge to me, but an Amish person would probably disagree, for instance.

Straight Edge is more of a Philiosphy on your own life.

People say they are Straight Edge, and then go and drink.


Really, Straight Edge now seems like a fashion thing.

"Straight Edge is not an internet phenomenon. It does not exist so that you can have something cool to call yourself by. Straight Edge did not distance itself from hardcore. Straight Edge does not exist seperately from any musical scene. Straight Edge is hardcore. It is about the music. It is about the fellowship and it is about being drug free. Don't fool yourself into thinking differently. You're not straight edge if you have no idea how it feels to be in a pit, arm outstretched, fingerpointing, and singing along with a straight edge anthem. I honestly can't imagine having no clue how amazing that feels. To feel connected to the scene, the music the people. "to be a part of something real". If you've never felt it, then you have no idea. It's like knowing the theory but not the practice. Straight edge is an active thing. It's not something you stop being and come back to. You are not straight edge if you have no connection. You are not straight edge if you've never been to a show. if you've never bought a record. If you hate hardcore. "

...How old are you?? If your under 21, your not straigt esge, your just following the law....
Also, you have to really believe and know about it, not just do all those things, and hear about "being straight edge" and all of a sudden decide you are straight edge. You've got to have done your research and know what your all about.


That's just my opinion of course.

You are only straight edge if you want to be.
Basically, you determine if you are straight edge, not the other way round.
Its just become a name people give to their lifestyle choice to try and score some cool points and thats not the way Ian MacKaye intended it to be.

straight isn't just about not doing drugs or drinking or any of that. Yeah, thats a part of it but straight edge as a whole is a belief system that you live by, not just claim because you've never been drunk and want to label yourself because you think it'll make you look cool.

I hate all this straight-edge, hardcore xHxCx or however you "spell" that crap. Just keep on going. If you're happy, you're a winner in life.

What does it matter? If you're clean and happy, then that should be the end of this discussion. If you drink or some or what have you, and you're happy with that, then good for you. Life shouldn't have to be about appeasing others to make yourself happy. If you can't make others happy being yourself, then you should start to question if they are truly worth it.

Exactly. Anyone whose a pretentious c*ck about being straight edge is a douche.

As far as I can tell straight edge is a really bad holier than thou attitude to have, and is ironically materialistic.

"Look at me.. X's on my hands!" "look I'm really HxCz wiv all mah hxcz apparel"

Sure not everyone who is "Straight edge" is like that, but come on, alot of "them" are.
