after updating myself on the straight edge tag section on tumblr, i must say two things.
FIRST OFF: nazi’s shits fuck off. dont tag your bullshit with our scene/community, you dont belong and never will. get stomped.
ok now since thats out of the way, i notice people are still posting about their states/cities/countries/schools not having any like-minded individuals and how they have no straight edge friends. well go to a fucking show. we are everywhere, just go to a show and look around. stop complaining. we dont just exist on tumblr. tumblr was made in 2007 while straight edge has been around since the 80’s. so find a rad show and make friends.
haha scene kids buy smoking shirts? thats a thing? scene is still a thing?!
anyone notice that SOMETIMES theres a difference in behavior and integrity from Straight Edge kids that were punk before…and the ones that were “scene” before they found hardcore? the “scene” root kids tend to care too much about appearance and reputation, get face tattoos then usually break…
why is this andy hurley superfan all of a sudden the go to person on edge facts?

Anonymous asked: SxE started by punks. Today SxE is just no smoke, no drugs and clothes only. Where's the anti capitalism, the search for freedom, counter culture?
The sounds of the resistance have been drowned out by the better-organized and better-funded mass media organizations, which constantly ask you:
"We’re young, we’re hip, we know what’s cool; wouldn’t you just be happier if you were more like us?"
so if youre punk, you have to be anti capitalist or be super counter culture? how is every “punk” thinking the same even punk at all? i think this person is missing the idea of The Straight Edge. it set people apart from the “normal” punk rocker back in those days which typically indulged heavily in drug use and alcohol consumption. sometimes just swimming against the current isnt enough. sometimes we need different directions.

WE DO ANYTHING THAT’S FUN…just without drugs and/or alcohol.
I’m just going to assume that if you’re asking this question, YOU are stating that you only have fun when your using drugs or drinking…which is a bit sad. I’m sad for you :[
