Straight edge

Straight Edge refers to a lifestyle that started within the hardcore punk subculture whose adherents make a commitment to abstain from using alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, and sometimes engaging in promiscuous sex. The term was coined by the 1980s hardcore punk band Minor Threat in the song “Straight Edge”. Since its inception there has been considerable debate over what constitutes a straight edge lifestyle. Adherents’ main objective is to not “poison” the body in any way. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Anchor

    For some, it apparently is (or dare I say 'appropriately'). But one should nevertheless honour those who so voluntarily and selflessly remove their faulty genes from the pool. :p @Abhorrance666: I am convinced that the hostility stems from the realization that you're holding a mirror up to them, and they can't deny the monstrous reflection that they are otherwise so easily allowed to dismiss. (disclaimer: not edge myself, but a vegan teetering on the... well, edge, I guess). Hi King!
