I think that straight edge and queer culture have a lot to offer one another. From sXe I’d love for queer culture to absorb a sense of commitment to health, self-respect, and intentionality about lifestyle choices, as well as a sense of how individual choices can be meaningful within the context of a broader community. Queer culture can offer sXe a refusal of the machismo and gender rigidity that plagues the scene; a rejection of the false moralism of pseudo militants; and above all, a fucking sense of humor.

… a sense of humor that doesn’t embrace being an oppressive asshole.
I feel this. I have all the feels for this. I think edge culture has a lot to offer queer culture as well.
Our hearts beat so loud the neighbours think we’re fucking when I’m just trying to find the nerve to touch your face.
