I dont really see such a big deal about being straightedge...I myself am not,I'm more of just about being sober. But I mean its a lifestyle choice that some choose and you know more power to them just as long as theyre not assholes about it and arent all offended when somebody isnt.

thats just my two cents about it...but I mean honestly I think the "straightedgers" (for lack of a better term) wouldnt get such a bad rap if the majority of them (or atleast the ones I've met) werent so imposing with their beliefs and whatnot.

I've never quite understood it. "being sober" makes sense to me; sobriety means not intoxicated. straight edge means... well, different things to different people, but generally: no illicit drugs, no alcohol, no casual sex.

so I see in there a set of tenets that makes me think, self-respect, self-control, and recognition of dignity... but if you stop with the tenets of sXe you're just a scenester -- if you say you embrace a healthy life free of drugs and alcohol but habitually eat unhealthy food than you're a hypocrite. same if you pop a tylenol every time you've got a little headache or take nyquil at the first hint of a cold. I don't know why the casual sex thing is in sXe but if it's to avoid the risks of STDs but you continually put yourself at risk in other ways you're a hypocrite, or if it's to respect your dignity and the dignity of others and you treat people like shit in ways besides taking advantage of them sexually you're a hypocrite.

that's my 2 cents.

... i wouldn't mind them either ... the bad thing about your point of view is that ... MOST of them try to push their beliefs on ye ... And thats why most of my friends aren't straight edge ... cause i cant stand that stupid shit ... same thing with vegetarians, religious fucks, and even feminists ... do what ever you do ... just don't fucking try and convert me to yer fucked up life style.

oo and just because i can



fuck i'm hungry.

most of your friends aren't straight edge because people say they should be?

Who me? No. I am friends with all kinds of people, not just straight edge or vegan people. But, the people I like the best tend not to care what anyone else thinks of them.

There was no such thing as straight edge in my high school. It seriously just didn't exist. The technical school I went to part-time had straight edge kids though. One of my best friends of all time was straight edge vegan and she never preached to me. In fact back when I used to be a raging pot head one of the reasons I stopped going to school high was because I didn't like being high around her. Not that she gave a shit if I was high, it just didn't feel right.

Same to you. If you're not vegan or straight edge, why are you here?

sXe started because some people wanted to have a good time without getting trashed. thats all it is.. the people that are pushy about it dont get it.. all straight edge is, is proving to people you can have a good time without forgetting what you did last night or barfing all over your self. im edge because i think its more fun to just screw around than drink and smoke and snort and shoot up crap.
