“If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other.”
Chorioactis geaster is found only in a few locations in Texas, where it is called the Texas star, and Japan, where it is known as kirinomitake ( キリノミタケ). The fruiting body grows as a tube, before it splits into four to seven rays, in a process called dehiscence. The inner surface is covered with spore-producing tissue called the hymenium, which can be coloured white to brown.
