A way of life commonly affiliated with the hardcore/punk scene. The early straight edge movement was supported by musicians such as Ted Nugent, Minor Threat, Uniform Choice, Cause for Alarm, etc.
Those that follow the straight edge lifestyle abstain from recreational drug use (straight edge extremists may not even use drugs for medicinal purposes), alcohol, and casual sex, therefore ensuring that they have a healthier, happier life. They are also strong-willed, smart, self-respecting people that prove that you don't need to mess yourself up to be happy.
Most straight edge people have complete disdain for hippies, stoners, smokers, alcoholics, and promiscuous people and see them for the weak-willed jack offs that they really are. Remember, ganja kills!!
A common straight edge sign would be: sXe. Straight edge people also may be seen crossing their arms across the front of their bodies with black X's drawn across the back of their fists.
Stoner: Hey, man, you wanna go toke up???
Straight Edge Person: No, you fucking moron. I wanna live.

Straight edge, sXe came out of the punk scene. Minor Threat wrote a song called Straight Edge, which entails no drinking, smoking or drugs. In another song called Out of Step, they elaborate and add on no permiscuous sex.

Quite a few sXe and HC kids are Vegan and Vegetarian also, "poison free".

The universal symbol for this musical movement is an X or XXX as well as XXX with two lines below it, as well as three sailing stars on the hand right by the thumb.

Music, hardcore, HC plays a large role in straightedge, sXe. There is more to sXe, straight edge than not drinking, smoking, doing drugs or having permiscuous sex...it is about music! And some would argue that permiscuous sex shouldn't be included.

Some kids have taken sXe further and are what is known as "Hardline."
STRAIGHT EDGE

I'm a person just like you
But I've got better things to do
Than sit around and fuck my head
Hang out with the living dead
Snort white shit up my nose
Pass out at the shows
I don't even think about speed
That's something I just don't need

I've got the straight edge

I'm a person just like you
But I've got better things to do
Than sit around and smoke dope
'Cause I know I can cope
Laugh at the thought of eating ludes
Laugh at the thought of sniffing glue
Always gonna keep in touch
Never want to use a crutch

I've got the straight edge
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
OUT OF STEP
(i) don't smoke
don't drink
don't f**k
at least i can f**king think
i can't keep up
i can't keep up
i can't keep up
out of step with the world

Straight Edge(sXe) is a choice not to do anything that pollutes the body or mind.

A sXe kid will not drink, smoke, do drugs, or have sex(unless in a committed relationship). Hardcore sXe-ers don't drink, smoke, do drugs, have sex until marriage, and are vegan. This all varries from person to person, but the "rules" generally are:

No Drinking
No Drugs
No Sex
Kid A: Hey you want a drink?
Kid B: No, I'm sXe.


No one night stands.

a bunch of emo faggots who think they're better than everyone because they dont do drugs, obviously they dont know shit about addiction because they're such little butt pirates and they got daddy and mommys money because they never stopped sucking her titty, and they hate sex too, but thats just an exuse because they are either,

A) closet fags
B) to un-attractive to get any.
they have and always will be most hated by all other groups, people like preps better than those pussys.

Straight edge was invented by a song from the band Minor Threat in the early 80's. It was all started by one line in a 45 second song, I've got the straight edge. It was invented in Washington DC and was brought up to Boston by a guy named Al Bareal he invented hardline. Straight edge has three simple rules no drinking, no drugs, and no smoking. Hardline is much like straight edge but has more rules than just no drinking, no smoking, and no drugs. No caffine, have to be a vegetarian or vegan, no sex unless it's procreation, no imported chocolate, no porn, no masterbating are some of the other rules. There are two types of straight edge lifestyles the positive an the militant. Boston is known for it's militant type edge, Boston Beatdown. Straight Edge is a lifestyle not a label. It is a new generation. Here is the real history and def of straight edge.
There is no example either your straight edge or not
