Two roads diverged in a yellow wood.
The one who thinks the same at 25 as she did at 20 has not made anything like the most of the intervening years.

– W. E. B. Du Bois
I am a lot of not things.
A lot of people seem to think that “feminism” means “gender equality”. While it can, and has and often does and sometimes doesn’t, contribute to achieving it, that is not what it means.
If you’re looking for a Hitler comparison, they are out there, and far more worthy of the title than Trump.
The point, however, is – even without that, even in the best case scenario where military dogs are truly cared for and about, before, during, and after service, respected, treated as equal, awarded and celebrated as equal, mourned as equal (and I believe this scenario is generally the case), even then the question remains: should they ever be there in the first place?
It may often seem that the public are presented with a choice between either a more interesting but less factual journalistic style, or a more accurate, and objective, but less engrossing scientific style. However, the public currently have access to science communication which comes directly from the scientists themselves, and is just as captivating and engrossing as any media sensationalism.
In these following three case studies, science communication has directly influenced, and continues to influence, matters that are far from trivial: the education of America’s children; global policy on the planet’s future; and the life or death of people (born and unborn) caught up in South Africa’s AIDS epidemic.
