The lifestyle choice for those with a superiority complex, but nothing to back it up. Followers are often pale/skinny/socially awkward
D&D nerds don't get to really look down on enough people, so I think I'll try straigh-edge

similar to emo in that it was invented by Ian Mackaye but got out of hand and now totally sucks.

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).
1) Edge: STAY TRUE!
Normal Kid: Are you always this uptight?

2) Guy in the mall: (lights up)
Hardline Kid: (beats the shit out of the smoker)

My friend Coral* refuses to do drugs, drink, have sex before marriage, or even look at porn because she is straight edge.

A nicer word for the term "Pussy". They think they are tough but really bake cookies for each other and enjoy each others company at hardcore shows because rather than getting a life, or a girlfriend, they slam dance to 3 chord music.

Joe:D00D I AM TEH Straight Edge PH33R ME!
Bob:Shut up, pussy.

An attempt to give an abstinence policy a 'street' name so they don't realise that they're missing all the fun.

A bunch of fags that swear off drinking, smoking, and doing drugs. Useally in the hardcore scene. More often than not they are 9-5 edge, breaking there pledge under the table. Straight Edge people have been known to become violent against people for not being edge or being "racist". Going so far to kill a guy wearing a Lynard Skynard shirt. Also will beat your ass in the pit, if your hands are not marked with the straight edge X's.
Did you see those straight edge fags smoking pot. Their full of shit.

Punk rocking kids who realized they were being posers, so they formed their own clique of punks that don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. Hobbies include hanging out with real punks and leaving when the punks take part in illegal activies, along with calling themselves straight edge repeatedly to assert their sense of a higher morality.
"Hey do you want to smoke some weed"?

"No thanks, I'm straight edge."
