In the non poser sense (i.e. someone who actually stays committed and doesn't give in to the pressure to use substances and have tons of sex) Someone who chooses to live a clean life free of the iniquity of poisonous substances such as alcohol, tabacco, drugs, as well as refraining from sex when not accompanied by a strong emotional attachment. Doesn't have to beat up people but some choose to not because they are straight edge but because they are assholes. However, to be straight edge is to endure ridicule, bias, fear, and prejudice. But knowing that your stronger in your convictions than others gives you all the support you'll ever need knowing that you don't rely on a crutch to facilitate social functions and happiness cause straight edgers can socialize and have fun in a natural state.
stoner/alcoholic/idiot-"hey man want to inject poison straight into your body and be miserable from this day foward without said poison until you can no longer function as a person cause your slowly dying a painful agonizing death?"

Attempt by Mormom kids to make their cult mandated lifestyle seem cool.
If I gotta wear the magic underwear and not drink Coke, then you won't either!

originated from the punk/hardcore scene, a straight edger is offtenly referred to as a douche. One who has given up on all the fun things in life, a person who, for fun, dancing in circles wailing his/her arms about as if in some sort of cardiac arrest.
That Straight Edge kid should get knocked the fuck out

Straight Edge is a way of life. It includes

no smoking
no drinking
no drugs
no premiscuous sex

It is somthing people decide to do because they don't want to fuck up their body just for a rise. sXe was originated by hardcore IT'S NOT FUCKING EMO! scene kids stole straight edge to be cool and so now a lot of people think that sXe is just a trend for fags who think thry're cool. Some bastards claim edge because it makes them feel superior.
I'm straight edge, and I don't want to make people feel inferior. It's somthing I chose. The local scene kids claimed edge for about a day, probably making them feel really cool before they went back to drink and drugs to help them with their non existant lives.

A straight edge person, is one who woke up one morning when one was around the age of 14 and one realized, "Wait, I haven't done any drugs yet, all of my friends have, I need to come up with an excuse for why I'm not cool. I know, I'll tell everyone I'm straight edge!"
One then lives one's life until the age of 23 being straight edge. Get's "xxx" tattooed on one's arm, never gets laid. Upon turning the age of 24, has a beer, regrets the tattoo, and realizes it's too late to ever have sex because one is a homo.

Person 1: "Hey man... you know when you're tripping and-"
Cut off by Person 2: "No way dude, I'm straight edge."
Person 1: "Oh, so do you like butt sex?"
Person 2: "No, I'm straight edge."
Person 1: "You're gay."

The only thing gayer than Emo. Being straight edge is just an excuse for kids who are too pussy to try drugs or drink, or for kids who dont have any friends. What makes me laugh is these kids actually think their hard core " gangstas " with their wal-mart rags over their fat, pale nerd faces. I wish one of these kids would live by me so I could beat the shit out of him.
Straight edge kids suck at life

Straight edge is a real and life long dedication. people say that they're straight edge when they don't even know what it means. it's no drugs, no alcohol, and no casual sex, true. b ut it's not just that. it's no impurities are to enter your body, period. it means you won't poison your body or mind at all. not jus until your 18, or 21, or married. YOUR WHOLE LIFE. all the "scene" and "emo" wannabe-s claim to be straight edge, but they can't even define it. they just to be cool. they realy need to research. seriously.
