sXe? anyone here pull that stuff? Im a pretty good kid don't drink alot never really do drugs and sex is limited but do any of you walk around with the Xs on the hands and crap. I went to see afi a few years ago before they were cool and havoc had his xs and stuff on and I thought it was gay...but now all these little kids who didn't know afi or any cool bands excisted untill mtv showed them are pimpin the marker hands. I don't like trends but I hate them when they include good bands and making them look dumb...anyway is anyone down with that.

I know a few guys around here who have been doing it forever and only pimp the marker when they are at concerts.

That's how one of my friends is. It gets annoying, but he's a good guy. Funny thing though...when I saw Norma Jean over spring break, a lot of kids came there w/ both hands Xed and probly in the duration of 3 or 4 hours or whatever had smoked a half a pack of cigarettes. Didn't make sense to me, but whatever.

ha silly boy its because davey does it....

it was actually started in the 80s with a band called minor threat. it started simple with no xs and was only against mind altering drugs and lazy seexs. now its all about vegans politics and other junk. they are intolerant and don't respect others who aren't the same as them. I don't mind smoking cigars or having a drink or sex but them telling me not to and that they are pure and clean when im going to hell is wrong.

the Xs actually means that you can't drink. Its from the idea that when you go to most punk shows they mark underage kids with an X so that when they aproach the bar they can't get alk. Then older people who refused drink would also get an X on there hands to be cool or show there background.

What he said. When we went to St. Andrews over spring break when they asked us "You guys gonna drink?" my brother said "Are you gonna let me?" The guy was big, didn't find it funny, made a face, put the X on his hand and let us in.

Back to my friend. He tells people he's "straight edge" all the time (or, staright edge, cuz he can't spell) but he has no idea what the real idea of it is about. All he says is the drinking and smoking. If you don't want to drink or smoke, don't, but don't throw your X's at me.

no **** eh.

and some people around here.. they like get pissed at you if you smoke, drink or whatever... like this one guy. he was close friends with this chick.. he found out she smoked.. and got all pissed at her and doesnt really talk to her as much any more...

thats stupid.. if some one wants to smoke.. good for them, if some one doesnt wanna smoke.. good for them too.. they probably respect your opinions.. so no reason you shouldnt respect theirs

I don't like it when my friends smoke. That's simply because I've always had a problem with people close to me smoking ever since I was young. When my parents got divorced both smoked for a short amount of time. When I saw it I really got pissed off because I wasn't used to the sudden change. Then on Halloween I found out one of my very close friends smoked and I was very upset (for various reasons). It is just something that stuck with me. She's quit shortly after and all is well (well, most). Still, I never gave her a lecture or made it super apparent that I cared...she actually asked because she figured out on her own it bothered me.

As for other people, I don't know them so I won't preach to them. I don't agree with the use of drugs, smoking, or the ABUSE of alcohol. When people close to me cross the lines it effects me, but when it's someone I don't know I could care less. Let people live their lives...concentrate on yours.

Haha, I saw a kid who had "|W|E|E|D| my anti-drug" in his AIM profile one day. One of the cool kids w/ the "It's not a drug, it's an herb," mindsets. Mildly funny.
