One major note: you can't be edge if you have more than three bedrooms in your house.
"Yeah, but he's got more than three bedrooms in his house, so he's a FAKIE."
2) "Dude...that edge kid has four bedrooms in his house!"
"WHAT WOULD IAN MCKAYE SAY!!?!?!?!?"
often stands on a soapbox and preaches the benefits of being better than other people.
the average period one is straight edge for : about 1 yr. although they will praise themselves as "edge for life".
Also completley misunderstood, nearly from Day 1.
1)Edge kids blieve in "rules" of no smoking, drinking, drugs or casual sex, with variations of veganism pro-life, etc.
2) Some of these variations are ridiculous and fascist.
But edge wasn't supposed to be rules, it was just supposed to be what you thought was right, and what was good for your health (ahem, getting in fights with smokers may not be too healthy).
Normal Kid: Are you always this uptight?
2) Guy in the mall: (lights up)
Hardline Kid: (beats the shit out of the smoker)
Staightedge people are usually scene/emo but not necessarily. Staightedge basically means that someone refrains from drugs/alcohol, smoking and illicit sex. Most straightedge kids refrain from all three, but it can be any combonation. Many sxe people are also vegatarians or vegans and some are religous.
SceneKid.SxE: Nah, I'm straightedge.
