A form of sXe-ness. Could be considered a "higher degree".
This is when a person does not take part in drugs, alcohol or sex.
Often confused with sXe (no drugs, no alcohol).
Often a label picked up by those who desperatly want to belong or those who are under-age.
Feww are actually "edge" or "out of step" for life, sooner or later they realize it's a waste of time.

The proof is in the song!

"I'm a person just like you
But I've got better things to do
Than sit around and fuck my head
Hang out with the living dead
Snort white shit up my nose
Pass out at the shows
I don't even think about speed
That's something I just don't need

I've got the straight edge

I'm a person just like you
But I've got better things to do
Than sit around and smoke dope
'Cause I know I can cope
Laugh at the thought of eating ludes
Laugh at the thought of sniffing glue
Always gonna keep in touch
Never want to use a crutch

I've got the straight edge"

Ian McKaye of Minor Threat, "Straightedge," 1981
