I don't, though I do seem to have a lot in common with them.

Actually, what Minor Threat said was you can do all of those things, they just can't be the center of your life.

Dude, edge as a cultural movement has evolved so much beyond what it originally was. Now a lot of it has to do with making the choices that you feel are right in the context of your own life.

So then.. I could use drugs, alcohol, have sex with hookers, and eat red meat every day so long as I felt it was right in the context of my own life?

Hot damn, Ian is going to be proud of me.

Straight Edge is just a dumb scene.
I'm all for not doing things that people pressure you to do.
But straight edge has become the hot thing
so people are being pressured into being straight edge
Its absolute hypocrisy

Which is why Minor Threat distanced themselves from it later on.

I'm intoxicated right now, so I guess I'm not. Used to be though, when I was like 17. Glad I didn't get the xxx tattoo.

The idea was that people were losing themselves in the use of drugs and alcohol, and becoming wastes. Also, they looked at it as a form of mind control and uniformity. Ian felt like without things like this in his life to distract him from his goal, he could accomplish a lot more. But, that's only when it becomes a daily thing, and the center of your universe. Each member, aside from Ian, smoked pot, drank, and had sex. But, they didn't do it all the damn time. At least, not until the latter days of Minor Threat. Ian wasn't really looking to start a movement, he just kinda wrote about what he was thinking. That happened to speak to a lot of people. Eventually it became another uniform amongst punk rockers, and he distanced himself from it, though he still holds those ideals. Like when he wouldn't do an interview for Rolling Stone because they wouldn't do an issue that didn't have tobacco and alcohol ads.

Since you clearly know what you're talking about, I have no choice but to consider you an expert on the matter.

Everyone listen to this guy.

Lets see.. Superman.. no.. Batman.. Nope.. Aquaman.. Nope.. Punisher? Well, he's not really a good guy, is he.. Hmm... I think you're right.

Oh wait, what about Bugs Bunny?

Well, I seem to follow the original rules (no drinking, smoking, or doing drugs)

and no casual sex. Although that wasn't really my choice.

But if I'm offered alcohol, I'll just say "I don't drink" rather than "I'm straight edge."

I just feel that going round telling people I'm straight edge would be really obnoxious of me. Like if I said it, it'd be like "I'm straight edge, bitch."

I have a question though: Can I be straight at the edge if I consider every night an Arby's night?

I don't do drugs or drink but I don't label myself anything for it. I just say I'm clean. I don't have sex either but hey, that's not my choice.
