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.
sorry man, im straightedge.
it is NOT an abreviation of sexy.
straightedgekid: hell no, im sXe.
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.
Don't offer me drugs, drinks, or tobacco.
sxe is the way for me!
