Alright, lemme clear some of this out for you guys. Straight Edge is just a matter of opinion. We are a group of people that would rather go to a hardcore show than get shitfaced at some lame ass club. As far as smoking cigarettes goes, any self-respecting person shouldn't buy them because you're paying to destroy your own lungs. And drugs, well that's the touchy subject. Most of us choose to abstain from drugs because of what they've done in our personal life.

But, before you call us out and say we're queers for out beliefs. Just remember, you're the people that are wasting your time bad-mouthing a group of people on the internet.
(A kid who says he's straight edge and then goes and smokes and drinks is not, I repeat not straight edge. Believe me, we hate those guys just as much as you do.)
Person A : Hey man, want a smoke?
Person B : Nah, I'm cool.
Person A : What's up man? You don't drink, you don't smoke, don't do any drugs?
Person B : Nah, I'm Straight Edge.

One who begins to act straight edge for fashion, rather than physical or emotional health. Usually poseur straight edges can be identified by being 13-15, ages when most have no choice but to be straight edge, but few choose to flaunt it. Pen-drawn X's on the back of the hands are one of the only things that is similar between a real straight edge and a poseur straight edge. Poseur straight edges are essentially whatever clic the individual was before they found that marker, plus two black x's. These kids usually are not part of the hardcore scene in itself, but try to salvage their integrity by listening to watered-down, cookie cutter hardcore music.
Ernest: Hey! That kid looks hardcore straightedge! Oh wait! He is wearing dickies shorts and 130 dollar skater shoes and he has blonde hair! Whoops!

General douchebag version of a drug free kid.
Someone who is IN YOUR FACE drug free for absolutely no reason. They feel the need to announce to everyone that they are straight edge and generalize everyone who doesnt draw x's on their hands as douchebag people.

Will challenge you to constant fights completely unprovoked if you aren't straight edge (Even if you are drug free) but will never fight one on one and will only fight with weapons and all of their friends at the same time.

Claim to be doing good for their communities but are actually horrible, terrible people.

Usually are only straight edge to get attention but if none of their straight edge kid friends find out, they have no problem drinking/smoking/doing drugs.

Claim that Earth Crisis is the best band in the world but it is actually the single worst band in existence.
Regular person: Oh hey whats up man?
Straight edge kid: FUCKING BEING STRAIGHT EDGE!! ARE YOU STRAIGHT EDGE!?!?!?!
Regular Person: No, I don't think so.
Straight edge kid: FUCK YOU!! FIGHT ME!! (calls all of his friends to come fight the regular person)

OR

Straight edge kid: Hey, what are you doing?
Regular Person: Uhh... hey stranger. Im off to donate to the food bank and go help out at the animal shelter. You wouldn't happen to have a cigarette I could have would you?
Straight edge kid: FUCK YOU YOU PIECE OF SHIT DRUGGIE!! YOURE DEAD!!!
Regular Person: I was just asking, sheesh. It's not that big of a deal.

OR

Single Straight edge kid: HEY ASSHOLE!! FIGHT ME!!
Smoker who was minding his own business: Ummm... okay?
Single Straight edge kid: what... really? (runs away)

OR

Straight edge kid: LETS GO SEE EARTH CRISIS!! STRAIGHT EDGE XXX XVX SXE STRAIGHT EDGE HARDCORE STRAIGHT EDGE!!! FUCK YEAHHHHH!!!!

Non-straight edge kid: No, thanks, I like music.
