First, let's take this mini-quiz:
Scientists are people (and parents!) too. The idea that we are nerdy people who never see the
light of day�and who care only about fame from discovery. Please� I care very much what my daughter is
exposed to: what she eats, breathes, drinks and touches.
Whether we're talking about a Far Side or Looney Tunes cartoon, Dr. Frankenstein or any number of Hollywood productions, scientists are probably one of the most stereotyped professions that exist. Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but I've seen a lot of scientist bashing on various websites, especially those that are against genetic engineering. For a subject this important, I think we need to keep our objectivity.
