Well- I happened apon this community by accident... just searching for something interesting to read. It's kinda funny how much crap you get for being straight edge. In high school being straight edge defined who I was... who I hung out with... where we went... and the things we did. I thought it was so dumb that it meant so much. I graduated last year and since then I haven't even thought about the seperation between sXe and not... I don't hang out with the same people anymore but I also don't do any of that crap. I guess it just goes away the more you mature.
