etherealmenace asked: What is a straightedge clothing company? How does a clothing company become identified in that context unless they put certain logos or images on their products, or market them in a way inconsistent with the straightedge paradigm?
Its anyone with access to a screen printing set up and like to throw the same shitty design that 30 other companies came up with, that they ripped off of some band. Don’t get me wrong some symbols are Iconic to the name, but I get pretty bored of the same design over the same camo shirt that has been used a million times. http://madeintheusa.storenvy.com/collections/507553-shirts/products/3853294-american-straight-edge-till-death this shirt in particular is a rip of album art from the band chain of strength, and this shirt is a rip off the judge logo http://madeintheusa.storenvy.com/collections/507553-shirts/products/818510-american-sxe-hammers, this shirt is a rip off of the band Terror whos tshirt says “Keepers of the Faith” http://madeintheusa.storenvy.com/collections/507553-shirts/products/415086-keepers-of-the-beard-shirt. I mean I understand that there is only so many way you can put that kind of symbolism on something. But its pretty annoying to me when I can directly point out some that’s a rip off in a community that preaches DIY and Originality.
It’s not so much “rip off” but an homage. Its basically how a band covers another band out of respect and admiration. But in this case its with clothing. There’s nothing wrong with that. If you want to stick to DIY then go for it but don’t put down someone’s work, especially within our own community. We’re all just trying to get by and spread a little pride man :)
If you are under 18 and claim to be “straight-edge” you sir or ma’am are a fucking idiot! You are merely abiding by the law.
On a side note, any Melbourne people wanna get high and listen to records with me?
I can never tell if people are trolling anymore -_-
Anonymous asked: Being a straight edge is cool whatever but body positive should not just being promote loving your body but also health. Its ok to be "fat" and love your body but you should go to Dr to make sure you are health too. Obesity can cause lots of issues like diabeatis
Woah ok what? Body positive and Straight Edge aren’t the same. Your English is a bit hard to understand but I guess in a sense you’re right? I mean if you’re happy with your body then embrace it. But health is very important too.
Elitist? Hmm far from it. But thank you for your opinion on my opinion :)
Can you please just explain how my taste in music has anything to do with the fact that I’m straight edge? I’m very vocal about the…
I already answered an anon question similar to what you’re asking. I never said you weren’t a reasonable source. I was curious/confused. Also, I don’t track my tag because it seems to be a word in some other language so I can never find anything actually directed towards me
Anonymous asked: Dude, don't be a dick. People can be a fan of a band and also want to know more about being straight edge. If they follow straight edge people who just happen to run a fall out boy blog, then is say go right ahead and ask away.
I wasn’t being a dick. Like I said in the other anon reply, I’m not used to seeing seeing that. But if you think I’m a dick, I’m glad you’re using freedom of speech and voicing your opinion. ‘Merica.
