I have not visited that website yet, and this thread is not in response to it or any other site, or that thread. The post simply got me wondering about the nature of "edgy".

I am neither a woman or under 30 (I think - these Internet identities are so confusing).

So, back to the topic at hand...what is "edgy"? What is the "edge" that it refers to?

Is moving outward, attempting to move, or at least blurring that "edge" a good definition of edgy in this context? And if so, what would the opposite be?

Is it a good thing all the time in all circumstances?

Perhaps it's the edge of innocence?

The opposite would be "Antonyms: calm, easygoing, laid-back, peaceful, relaxed, tranquil". In other words "Sunny Florida"

Here are a few things that were considered VERY edgy when they were done. Don't worry - there is nothing here that people have not seen before...

Just to illustrate the point - that pushing the envelope IS a good thing and that things that appear edgy today can appear quite mainstream a few years down the road. I think most people would agree that we are better off because these artists did edgy work when people were advising them against it.

So if edgy is good, and "calm, easygoing, laid-back, peaceful, relaxed, tranquil" is its opposite, would that make "calm, easygoing, laid-back, peaceful, relaxed, tranquil" bad?
