Have Heart

I hate straightxedge kids. What's the fucking point? Not drinking, smoking, taking drugs and having sex when you're a minor is FOLLOWING THE LAW.

Sure, I respect people who have screwed up their lives with drugs, alcohol or whatever when they make the decision to go straight, but thats different to 16 year olds with X's on their hands bitching about their lives.

they want to live a clean life
nothing wrong with that
im talking more about the bands than the kids though
#8
I don't care if its people wanting to live a clean life. But I think they should make that decision after they've experienced though. Not a bunch of kids who've never had a drink or a cigarette before. It's just part of the scene now, which is a shame.

There isn't much of a straightedge scene here, but it's HUUUGE in Adelaide apparently.

You're 16. May I ask you what made you turn straighedge?


you do understand that it can be just a spontaneous decision, right?

since the day I was born, I've just not wanted to do anything wrong. does this make me straight edge? I have no idea. should you tell me that I can't be "straight edge" until I've gone through bad decisions? no, not at all. a person can simply choose to be straight edge without any previous experience. It's a choice and nothing other than a choice.

It's the kids who advertise the fact that annoy you and me.
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...


...You're still disappointing them...

The point of straight edge isn't just as a health issue, or a moral issue, it is that you do not want an outside source controlling your mind. I agree with that completely, which is why I claim edge.

I'm just don't get the title to be honest. I don't do drugs/alchohol and I no plenty of people who don't do anything that the straight edge kids don't do, but they don't go around carrying some ****ty title. I really don't get going around saying "Yeah, I'm straight edge" just tell people you don't do drugs or whatever.

EDIT: Posted without reading zayG's post. I kinda get that, but it still sounds like some useless title to be honest.

do you reckon straight edge people ever get temped to drink alcahole,
when really want to but they know they can't so they just dont?
#16
No, thats not what I'm saying. I'm saying that people are brought up thinking that alcohol, sex, drugs or whatever is bad, and they decide to refrain from it. But when they carry on like arseholes and get heaps defensive when you say something about straightedge being irrational, you can tell they're only doing it for the scene.

Alcohol is perfectly legal, and safe if drunk in moderation. All I think is that if you're gonna parade the fact that you're "clean" or "straight" or whatever, just at least know what can go wrong. It's the kids who don't try it before they protest against it who piss me off.

I have plenty of friends who drink and do drugs. I preach against when people smoke just because well, I find it disgusting, but that isn't driven by me being straight edge. I don't get defensive over it, I have my reasons, I'm not gonna preach it.

I smoke and drink. I find drinking is good, because I only do it at parties and its always with friends, and its for the sake of socialising, not for getting drunk.

I find smoking disgusting, but yeah.


I find you only live once, so I wanna experience everything. I complete respect your decision, just as long as you don't go around beating up non-straightedge kids because they're not straight, and if you don't aim for peoples faces in the pit.

That said, I still don't agree, and I think that going against something you haven't tried is irrational, but I will agree to disagree.

I agree with this on some points. I don't think you have to actually drink in order to decide you don't want alcohol. For me, I didn't want to drink because my uncle would become a total asswipe only when he was drunk. He would beat his kids and tell his wife some pretty god damn awful ****. I wasn't sure if that was how I would become if I got drunk, but I sure didn't want to find out. And ever since he became sober, hes been pretty much the nicest guy you'd ever meet. That and I can't stand the smell of beer.

That's why I told the OP to get out because those bands are sadly based around that meaning of "straight edge."

Fair enough.

I'm all for "I'd rather regret doing something than regret not doing something". So far, its all worked out. I drank a bottle of vodka in a night, passed out, broke a toilet seat, drank cat milk and vomited. I have now stopped drinking vodka.

I know my religious views are obviously influencing my opinions here, but I'm just trying to get rid of a negative image I may have left.

I drink for fun. I drink with friends. I smoke with friends. I smoke alone occasionally. For me, life is about indulgence, but I understand not everyone is like that.

I'm assuming you mean that atheism is what you're talking about here, and if you are, I'm atheist and very against the concept of religion, probably due to me being an astronomy nerd, but I don't really see that as being a reason to do or not do something.

I'm a LaVeyan Satanist. Nothing to do with worshipping Satan or anything, it opposes organised religion and deitisation, all of that stuff. It's called Satanism, because its strongest opposition is the Christian Church, namely the Seven Deadly Sins.

We believe that everything the church forbids is human instinct, and that we should indulge in life, rather than obstain.

Ahhh ok, I just made a bad assumption then.

I'm against how Christianity tries to guilt trip people, but my main gripe against religion is well...as I said, probably due to my background as an astronomy buff, but I just find the concept of god completely unlikely.

I don't care whatsoever about how I got here and where I will go when I leave. I'm just interested in the now, and the very close future.

Here is probably the best place to ask. What are some decent straightedge melodic hardcore bands? I'm really into Have Heart, and if I find more bands similar, I'd be happy.

Your pick up lines are worse then your hair!

Guy?s like you give us all a bad name, using girls for 15 minutes of fame. Tell them what they want to hear; you?re full of lies. Your ?conquests? just breed disgust in my eyes.

Look at women, see nothing but meat
It?s their real beauty you fail to see.

Your confidence hides your lack of conscience - you think you can have any girl.

Your life is about the girls your score, I'm turning things around, and now you're the *****. Cheap thrills have been all you?ve sought, Stripped away innocence without a though.

So when you find real love, want to settle down, who?s gonna want you then? Because when you lay down with dogs, you gonna get fleas ? you?ve got a sexually transmitted disease!

You think you are king
1.2.3 -STD!
Now wear your crown ? STD?s
