Straight Edge is basically a way of life that includes no drinking, no drugs, and so casual sex. Abbreviated SxE. It is not a religion or a gang. It is a choice that someone makes. However, not everyone who doesnt drink/do drugs/have casual sex is straight edge, and not all that say they are straight edge, are straight edge. People who are SxE might put black x's on their hands. yes, you can be friends with people who do these things. There are a few types of straight edge kids.
ex.

The true SxE kid - does not drink, does not have casual sex, and does not do drugs. Also, does not go around telling everyone he meets right away that he is SxE, when the time comes to bring it up, he does tell. Does not think himself better than others becasue he does not drink or do drungs or not have sex. Does not beat people up for smoking or drinking.

Asshole SxE kid - Abides by the 3 rules of SxE, but goes around thinking he is better than everyone, puts people down for it, and basically bugs the fuck out of people.

Scene/Fashioncore SxE Kid - Wears x's on his hands all the time, and wears a bandana around his mouth and nose all the time, usually has died black hair. Most of these kids are not actually SxE, hell, most of them dont even know the true meaning or SxE but say they are to get friends/be cool/fit in. They are the SxE trend kids, and give True SxE'rs a bad name. Becasue of these kids, most kids just think being SxE is wearing black x's and bandanas around your face.

Hardliner - Super SxE kids that usually are vegan, wont take drugs even for severe pain, drink caffeine, or do anything like that. There most defining trait ,however, is the fact that they beat the living shit out of people for smoking, drinking or doing drugs. They might see someone doing one of these things, not bothing them at all, get a bunch of their friends, and beat the shit out of one person with somewhere between 2-? people. These people sometimes kill the people they attack. They are the biggest threat to true SxE people. A lot of cops and other uninformed people, becasue of hardliners, believe SxE people to be a gang, and believe ever SxE kid will beat the shit out of someone smoking or drinking or something like that. They are hated by most SxE kids.
True Straight edge kid (when asked about drinking/drugs/sex) - "yeah, i dont do drugs, drink, or have casual sex. You do? ok, your choice man."

Asshole stright edge kid - Yeah im SxE and im fuckin better than you becasue of it, i dont poison myself and you do, your fuckin stupid as hell, i hate you all, go fucking burn yourself"

Scene/Fashioncore kid - (Wearing black x's on his hands and a black bandana over his face and his long died black hair) Yeah, Grr im SxE, im cool, wanna be my friend, im SxE, cmon im SxE you gotta like me, im cool." might also say that while drinking or smoking.

Hardliner (sees someone drinking or smoking, not bothering anyone, no one is in their range of 2nd hand smoke)
*goes and gets somewhere from usually 1 to 10 more hardliners then beats the hell out of the person drinking or smoking, some with brass knuckles or baseball bats* The beat up kid usually has to go to the hospital, and sometimes even dies

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.

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

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?"
Straight Edger-"no thanks"

People who don't want to destroy their bodies, and brains with toxins. These people, like myself, find it funny that some people who do enjoy drinking and smoking feel the need to insult them. It's a lifestyle fucktards. Deal with it. :)
Stoner: Hahaha straight edge faggot. Why don't you have some fun and get fucked up like us cool kids.
sXe: Naw. but have fun getting messed up man ;)

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.
i'm soo straight edge & scene. i'm emo& i like to hxc dance. we can get high. and drink some smirnoff. (anti-example)
