If you’re straight edge, don’t be apologetic about it and say it’s just your personal choice. Fuck that. This society forces drugs and alcohol on you as a means of obtaining social status and happiness, and perpetuates a culture where predatory sex is rewarded. It attempts to assimilate you. Don’t apologize for standing against the drug-normative society we live in. It’s your revolt against a destructive culture, not against your friends who have a beer from time to time.
