Quotes

ETSU's student body president, Doretha Benn says she agrees with the educational approach to having a sex week event. "We're all adults here, we're all in college and we know that people are going to have sex so we might as well educate them on how to be healthy about it so no sexually transmitted diseases come into play, no unplanned pregnancies, rape, or sexual misconduct just to mark those out"
"Sex and sexuality are a part of all people's lives in some way, whether they be straight, part of the LGBT community, sexual, asexual or anything else. For a lot of people sexuality is a very important part of their lives, and that's why it's important that people are able to make their own decisions about their healthy, identity and pleasure."
"I think that we were kinda surprised how nasty and negative the campaign got, but we were so thankful that the people of Washington County that said no to the negative and advertising. No to the personal attacks on my family and said yes to our conservative agenda. We're very thankful for that" says Hill
They replied in an e-mail saying, "These conversations are taking place among our student body. ETSU is an open, transparent and inclusive environment, and we support the exchange of diverse ideas."
