Gee, I wonder why there's a controversy

The Virginia state legislature is at it again. They are up in arms over a health fair at George Mason University. To be fair, the fair is poorly named. 'Sextravaganza' is a health fair that is intended to teach students about reproductive health, date rape, contraception and ABSTINENCE. The name of the fair may conjure up different images, but the stated goals carry important messages that college age students should hear. The problem is, they don't have an agenda. They are allowing all sides to present, and that has upset the social conservatives. Are you sure Virginia is not part of the South?
