Pretty much anybody wearing a “kill drug dealers” shirt a) doesn’t get that capitalism is a force that puts people in such horrible economic positions that they have no other choice than to sell drugs to survive, and b) probably have a very suburban understanding of what a drug dealer is, and if they ran into a street dealer in the city would probably shit themselves and run away. Quit posing, kids.
If you think no sex is part of straightedge, you’re an asshole, an idiot, and probably incredibly boring. Sex is awesome. Sex outside a committed relationship is fucking great! Go fuck someone today. With consent, of course. As long as you’re not doing it in a harmful way it can be fun for everyone.
If you think drugs prescribed by a doctor are an “edge break” you are an asshole. I have ptsd, and if it weren’t for taking Paxil I don’t think I would have survived the first couple months after my traumatic experience. Also, pain killers are necessary for most surgeries to heal properly. Basically, if you’re not abusing prescriptions, and you only take them exactly how the doctor recommended, you’re fine.
If your friends “break edge” don’t turn your back on them. They’re your friends. Don’t be a dick. Also, what if they turn out to be addicts or alcoholics, and down the line they need some support. It would probably be great to have some sober friends around, don’t you think? I’ve seen too many people die in isolation because they thought they couldn’t turn to their sober friends for help.
Coffee is awesome. Fight me.
If you have one of those “drugs are for sluts and losers” or whatever shirts, punch yourself repeatedly, because you are an asshole.
