No drugs
No alcohol
No casual sex

Being straight edge is not something you decide to be one day; it takes time and thought.

Don't boast about it or put down others who don't follow such ways. The whole point of it is to respect oneself and others.

sXe is not a trend. It started before any of those stereotypical labels were even invented and it will be here when they all die out.
To all those people who think sxe is for emo, goth, or any of those lame terms: go read a book.

Straightedge. It has the same basic principle (no drink, no drugs, no fuck) for all followers, but each person makes it their own. Some examples: some sXe people choose to be vegans or vegetarians, abstain from caffeine, save sex for marriage (as opposed to a serious, committed relationship). Straightedge has NOTHING to do with violence (in fact, most straightedgers discourage it) or religion (that's a personal belief). Some people say that taking medications is not straightedge, however, others will argue that sXe is all about taking care of yourself, and refusing legitimate medications is counter-productive to the general ideology.
Straightedge is a way to find unity with peers who have the same drug-free ideas as you, and many aspects differ from person to person.

something which is not to be taken lightly or as a trend. a personal descision to abstain from drink, drugs, and illicit sex. brought into being by ian mckay. true edgers do not ridicule those who havent chosen the same lifestyle, its their choice, and its theirs alone to follow.
would you like a drink?
sorry man, im straightedge.

sXe is short for straight edge. This means that you dont smoke, do drugs, or drink. sXe is a lifetime commitment, not just until you're of age. It also often means that the person says not to promiscuity and perverted forms of sex.

sXe is an abreviation of straight edge, which, in short, means that you abstain from abusing drugs, alcohol and tobacco, from promiscuous sex and from anythign else that poisons your body.

it is NOT an abreviation of sexy.

sxe is abbreviation for straightedge, which is also symbolized by X and XXX.

Minor Threat started straightedge in late 80's because of the self-hatred and the over-use of drugs.

The bartenders were told to put X's on minor's hands so that they could not drink. Straightedge kids picked up this idea and marked X's on their hand so people would know they don't drink.

straightedge is a philosophy against: drugs (caffeine, medicine, anything illegal.) drinking (alcohol, caffeine.) smoking (any form of tobacco.)

Some people include veganism, some include not having a religion saying god is a poison. Some people don't have sex until marriage or until a long-term commited relationship.

Straightedge is a way of life, not just a trend.
It has morals, it has beliefs, it is a philosophy that has grown into a movement.
I am straightedge.. and proud of it.
Don't offer me drugs, drinks, or tobacco.
sxe is the way for me!

The Straight-Edge movement; a way of life. In a nutshell, don't drink, don't smoke, don't fuck. It's a way of respecting yourself and others.
Symbolized by Xs.
SXE is a way of life. If I ever lose my edge, it'll be over.

Alright people, you are a bunch of retards! It does NOT mean sexy. It means that you have taken a personal vow not to ever drink, do drugs, or smoke. Get a clue will you?
