The godfather of Emo and now Straight Edge? I bet he's rolling his eyes as we speak! :D

What is the point of being straight edge anyway? Is it just to be annoying & preachy?

I mean i've not gone out & killed any whores for at least a year now but you don't see me bragging about it & writing songs about it.

There really is no point to it. It's just the morals by which someone chooses to live their life. If someone chooses to not get drunk or high why should other people care. People who get high and drunk sometimes entice others to join them. Is it wrong for a straight edge to try the reverse method and stop others from doing these things?

If you think it is wrong then IMO that makes you a hippocrit.

Personally, I think straight edge kids are about ten times more forceful with their beliefs. I've never once found out someone was straight edge and tired to get them to hit the blunt..ect, yet countless times these *******s tell me I'm no good because I smoke and drink and actually smile. Like its been pointed out we all do different things, so what the **** is the problem here?

I don't force people to drink or take drugs , in fact I rarely do either myself, and even if I did i'd let whoever I was with make their own choice.

So no it doesn't make me a hypocrite

Well straight edge people don't force anyone to stop their habits (except for a few but there's always those couple of people who give an entire group a bad name). I think it's great that you don't put down people who choose not to live your life style. Unfortunately we all know that there's always going to be this argument of "He/she doesn't want a hit 'cause he's/she's afraid" and "He's/she's just getting high to act hardcore and he/she can't have fun without it." I just say let's all go to the show and have fun in our own ways and let others do the same. There is no shame in either lifestyle.

Straight edge refers to a lifestyle that started within the hardcore punk subculture whose adherents make a commitment to refrain from using alcohol, tobacco, honey-roasted peanuts, and recreational drugs.
I loled when I read that. Hard. Just goes to show wikipedia has a sense of humor.

I honestly have no opinion on this whatsoever. I mean, I think it would be a shame if a person didn't go through life without experiencing the occasional drunken night or easy lay, but I'm not one to force my lifestyle upon other people.

I don't see why straight edgers need to be so proud of the fact that they don't do drugs, drink, or have sex. Most of the straight edgers I knew were major potheads that drank and sexed up lots of girls...it's just stupid really.

Minor Threat was the only good straight edge band. And they wern't even a straight edge band. Hmmmm...
