Salt Lake City[edit]

You got a citation for that?--not 'cause I don't believe you, but 'cause it sounds like an interesting story...TheoryOfPractice 09:34, 22 February 2009 (EST)

Here's one, http://toefur.com/straightedge/x/straightedgenewsarticles/straightedgegang.php - one thing about the SLC straight edge scene is it seems to have a reputation for violent "direct action" against those who drink or smoke. Not sure the extent to which this reflects the SLC scene as a whole, this could be a moral panic based on isolated incidents. Then again, the SLC scene could be an anomoly.

Abstinence[edit]

While i know Hardliners are all about no sex before marriage, i tend to remember from my time in the "scene" (although i just liked hardcore, and wasn't sXe myself), that abstinence was pretty common, "mainline" sXe dogma. Maybe that's just me though, as i live in the south-east US, where Christian straight edgers were common during the late 90s/early 00s. Petey Plane (talk) 19:47, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
