look up any word, like half chub:
A life choice made by those who's ego is the most defining characteristic they have. This ego is then justifed by, the belief that they are some how better than everyone else. These people are usually virgins with no friends, and like sheep, herd together to help boost each others egos. Straightedge, is a definition of a person who can't make a positive choice without fitting perfectly into a prearranged demographic. These people choose abstinence as a means to self justify. Meanwhile, their constant battle against temptation, coupled with their giant egos, causes them to become depressed, which they act out, (again with the support of the herd) in violence, and judgement of others.
These people don't understand that true positive choice goes much deeper than a tattoo and doesn't make u better or worse than anyone, or that we all have our own choices to make. and our own consequences .
"hey who's that guy with the tattoo on his face that was crying in the corner, and is now punching on with a random that was walking past?"

oh thats 'John'... he's straightedge

The lifestyle choice for those with a superiority complex, but nothing to back it up. Followers are often pale/skinny/socially awkward

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.
"I'm straight edge."
