The state of being strikingly different from something else.
Estimate, measure, or note the similarity or dissimilarity between two or more subjects
Generally only use one or the other to make a point stand out
Must have two subjects of the same general type
Need examples to compare/contrast
Can not do something unrealistic because then it becomes analogy
Cannot simply announce they are similar or different, must explain
"One of the things, both cows and whales are eaten by people in some countries as edible meat."
"....many cows are slaughtered everyday....whales are protected by national law..."
"...cows are important provisions for all over the world. However, whales are important edible animals only in a few countries."
"Cows are raised by farmers that are surrounded by fences. They don't have any future... on the other hand, whales are free in a huge ocean. They can swim and travel wherever they want. Even though, they are caught by people, other whales have a future."
Methods of Development
Thesis: Cows and Whales are both used for meat, and yet they are dissimilar in the certainty of their future.

"Without hesitating, I reached out and pulled the fern form her infants hair. Akmad did not blink to acknowledge me"- " His finger never touched the infants head. Without warning, Akmad recoiled"
"'I have never been attacked by an orangutan before. They are all my children and my friends" He sighed, 'Akmad is the gentlest of the all. I never expected her to attack me.'"
