What is a Woman? Response to Jacqueline Rose

Simon Elmer

The week after I published my article, ‘Trans Rights and the Order of Speech’ in Off-GuardianThe New Statesman published two articles by, respectively, the biologist, Richard Dawkins, ‘Why biological sex matters’ and the feminist, Jacqueline Rose, ‘The gender binary is false’. I don’t know Rose personally, but her 1986 book, Sexuality in the Field of Vision, had a considerable influence on me when I was studying for my MA in the History and Theory of Art at University College London back in the 1990s.

I was disappointed, therefore, at her defence of ‘trans rights’, which she undertakes on the basis of her belief that declaring oneself to be another sex is an act of liberation from the norms of gender roles. The agreement of the rest of us — who, by implication are too oppressed by patriarchy to free ourselves from our biologically determined sex — to recognise this act of liberation is, she concludes, ‘a matter of generosity and freedom’.

Unfortunately, in arriving at this conclusion, Rose, who is Professor of Humanities at the Birkbeck Institute in London, says nothing about trans as an official ideology which — despite being formed by a marginal U.S. subculture around an identity disorder — is being written into UK legislation, enacted in policy, enforced in law and indoctrinated into our children, and the fact that, whether feeling generous or not, we are all being forced into compliance with its orthodoxies, not its freedoms.

If Rose were speaking about the personal choices of what is still the fraction of the percentage (0.8% to be precise) of the U.K. population who identify as another sex then she may have a point about the rest of us being generous towards their fantasies; but she isn’t. Trans, as the recent month-long celebration of Pride across the West demonstrated, is part of the official ideology of the new paradigm of biosecurity by which we have been governed since March 2020.

Perhaps more concerning than this evidence of the customary blindness of academics to the world in which they appear not to live with the rest of us, Rose breezily dismisses the growing incidents of the violence of trans, in both its theoretical claims (lesbians who refuse to have sex with male transvestites are ‘transphobic’) and in the practices of its adherents (the now legalised call to ‘Kill the TERFS’), as a stereotype she compares to racism. This is the standard practice of woke ideology when its ideologues want to silence those with whom they disagree, and should be beneath a thinker of Rose’s stature.

And for someone who calls herself a feminist and whose defense of transgenderism is founded on Simone de Beauvoir’s famous statement that ‘One is not born a woman, but becomes one’, Rose’s dismissal of the misogyny of trans on the grounds that ‘woman’ is a construct is not only symptomatic of her safe, middle-class, academic perspective, but a betrayal of the women under attack by these violent men. Despite Rose’s characterisation of woman as ‘the mark of oppression, prejudice, low pay, the burden of domestic labour, violence in the home and on the street’, it is precisely the women who experience this violence — and who are overwhelmingly working class — that she is betraying.

Nor does Rose have anything to say about the death and rape threats, online abuse, cancellation, misogyny and physical attacks directed at public figures like J. K. Rowling and Kellie-Jay Keen (below) by trans activists and social-media trolls, and which the ideology of trans has authorised and even celebrates. Perhaps, to quote the time-honoured defence of equally violent and misogynist men who attack and abuse women, ‘they were looking for it’?

The only possible explanation for such a lack of concern for the safety of UK women and girls in the street, on the sportsfield, in the classroom, in women’s toilets, in trans-therapy clinics, on protests and in UK law is that Rose appears to have confused feminism’s critique of femininity and the inequality between the sexes — which unlike our biological sex is a construct of gender norms — with transgenderism’s denial of sexual difference and with it of women themselves. But that’s the sort of concession one would make to a first-year student straight out of the UK’s PSHE and RSE school curricula, not an internationally known academic.

A far more likely and mundane explanation is that Rose has simply aligned herself with the class of the students she teaches at Birkbeck, whose students are charged £19,200 per year in tuition fees to be indoctrinated into the principles and practices of woke; the class of her colleagues and publishers, all of whom have subscribed to its orthodoxies as a condition of occupying their positions; and the class of the ideologues of trans in academia, the media and Parliament. In the UK, trans is overwhelmingly an ideology of the middle classes.

But in addition to this demonstration — as if we needed it after two years of lockdown! — that allegiance to class one’s continues to trump feminist or any other kind of solidarity in the UK, Rose’s article is also littered with factual inaccuracies. Contrary to Rose’s assertion that ‘people over 65, especially women, are almost as gender-fluid as the young’, transgenderism, as I showed in Part Two of my article, is overwhelmingly an identity disorder of the young, and a product of their indoctrination into this ideology by our education and cultural industries. But it beggars belief that Rose, a female academic of international standing, when defining what the word ‘female’ means, cites a book by a transvestite man who calls himself Andrea Long Chu, and who in Females: A Concern (2019) wrote: ‘Getting fucked makes you female because fucked is what a female is’.

On the authority of this man — who also claims that the male anus is ‘a kind of universal vagina through which femaleness can always be accessed’ — Rose claims that the biological category of female — ‘as we understand it today’ — was developed in the 19th Century to describe black slaves.

I’m not sure how that caveat is meant to qualify this absurd and fantastical assertion, but, historically, the word ‘female’, which has a different etymology to ‘male’, originated in the 14th Century and derives from 12th-century French femelle and Latin femella, the diminutive of femina, which means ‘she who suckles’.

The contemporary spelling of ‘female’ was changed to correspond with ‘male’ in the late 14th Century; but rather than being a mere adjunct to the universal man, its Latin origin derives from the unique ability of a woman to breastfeed her child — to which transvestite men have recently extended their attempts to appropriate female biology through the new NHS orthodoxy of ‘chestfeeding’.

As for the word ‘woman’ — which Rose claims is an oppressive construct of patriarchy from which trans offers a means of liberation for men struggling to free themselves from what she calls ‘the straightjacket of masculinity’ — Old English used wer (cognate with Latin vir: adult human male) and wif (woman and also, but not especially, wife) to distinguish the sexesbefore wer began to disappear in the late 13th Century and was replaced by man. ‘Woman’ comes from Old English wimman, a corruption of wifman, which is a compound of wif (a neuter noun) and man (a masculine noun denoting a male or female human) to form a word for an adult human female exclusively. This isn’t, however, a merely etymological correction of Chu’s fabricated history. The meaning of words is important because, as history repeatedly demonstrates — most forcefully in the erasure of races, religions and cultures — when you erase the meaning of a word you erase what it denotes.

It is significant that Chu, who this year was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Criticism — a further demonstration of the ideological promotion of trans — openly admits that he was drawn to become a transvestite through his addiction to pornography, which one might guess is at the origin of his violent and deeply misogynist opinions and statements about women, as well as his own masochistic identification with what he sees as woman’s essential victimhood.

Of course, there’s nothing new about men acting out their fantasies of domination and submission in pornography; but what is significant is that this male violence and the object it wants to erase — the ‘fucked’ female of rape fantasies — is a product of one of the technologies of biopower, digital pornography, to which the libido of a generation of children and adults is being addicted and, through that addiction, indoctrinated into its values. If parents want to know the values the ideologues of trans are teaching their children in UK schools, look at the genre of pornography called ‘sissy porn’.

The fact that a woman, a feminist and an intellectual is collaborating and lending the considerable authority of her academic voice to such erasure is, unfortunately – and to speak in the language of psychoanalysis Rose herself has made a career of employing – a symptom of the times in which we live. And yet again, she appears to be almost entirely unaware of the past three-and-a-half years as anything other than a viral pandemic that, according to the latest estimates, killed nearly 7 million people, as if the sudden hegemony of trans has nothing to do with the dismantling of our rights, freedoms and democracy since March 2020, and their replacement with the regulations, programmes and technologies of global biosecurity.

But I don’t really believe that either. Like other UK intellectuals who have remained masked, injected, silent and obedient during the vast changes that have being imposed on our society over the last few years outside of any democratic process and on the basis of lie after exposed lie, Rose is not ‘confused’ — as I too generously suggested before.

Like every other academic lining up at the altar of lockdown, mandatory gene therapy, environmental catastrophe, digital identity and trans ideology, Jacqueline Rose — to use the existential language of her heroine — is demonstrating the mauvaise foi of the intellectual who, as intellectuals have done throughout history, side with authority during periods of authoritarian rule and ideological hegemony.

As I wrote back in the dark days of October 2021 — when we were asked to be equally ‘generous’ in offering up our bodies and children to experimental gene therapies as a condition of the return of our freedoms — history demonstrates that, when Hitler’s in the Reichstag, every coward wears a swastika.

What for me is annoying is that the LGB etc brigade now treat what would be the majority of people [Male and Female] who showed tolerance to the LGBT brigade. Are now treated far worse then they were treated when to be gay was illegal, but tolerated. Now we are called breeders, which could be a derisory insult and hurtful, and we should simply accept our role, and not to complain. I remember the advert on a London Bus which said, “Some people are gay get over it.” But when a similar request to place an advert on a London Bus which would have simply said, Some people are not LGBT, get over it.” It was disallowed as a form of hate speech. So now the tolerated, show no sign of toleration for others, now that they appear to be the rule makers. But I wonder what will happen in… Read more »

If any man wants to cross-dress, I’m all for it, but don’t call yourself a woman.

There is more to make a being female then just outside appearance. Cutting off your male genitalia and having female genitalia created does not make one female. Even if a man would have an uterus and ovaries “installed”, it would still not make him a woman but merely a man with those certain body parts.

No matter how much the fanatics claim the opposite, a woman’s physiology is very different from a man’s, just look at the shoulders and hip region.

Sorry to state the inevitable truth, but only nature can create men and women.

Apparently, some 80-100 percent of amputees suffer from phantom limb syndrome, described by the Cleveland Clinic as:

After an amputation, some people experience pain in the part of the limb that’s no longer there. This sensation is phantom limb pain. The pain is real. The phantom part refers to the location of the pain: the missing limb or part of the limb (such as fingers or toes).

Phantom limb pain ranges from mild to severe and can last for seconds, hours, days or longer. It may occur after a medical amputation (removing part of a limb with surgery). It can also happen after accidental amputation, when you lose a finger, toe or other body part. Phantom pain can be managed.

When a trans person removes their penis or breasts, do they get phantom penis syndrome, complete with sensations like that of an erection, or phantom breast syndrome?

Since there are persons who have lost either their breasts or their penis to cancer, perhaps they’re the ones to consult regarding phantom pain syndrome. This, since they did not choose to be maimed.

The Fuckedupness of Whitecoat Deification

“For parents, I would say this,” Scott writes, “It is simply not your right or duty to decide to medically transition your child. Remove that burden from your mind. Medical transition is for adults. The negatives associated with medical transition are vast, and you won’t be the one who lives with the consequences. It will be your child. If your child tells you they will kill themselves if you do not allow them to medically transition (perhaps following a script he or she is provided on Reddit or Tumblr), take them to the hospital so they can be treated for suicidal ideation. Suicidal ideation and seeking transition are separate issues, so separate them.”

What is a woman?

If you have to ask this question and debate it at length you’re pretty much as fucked up as the guys who pretend to be gals – probably because they’re stupid, unattractive, and lack self-confidence, and because of that can’t get laid, and think that if they pretend to be female, and even have their dick removed and a cunt installed, somebody will fuck their pitiful selves – you’re not quite as fucked up as these deranged motherfuckers, but you come close.

Whatever empathy I might have ever had for trans and more and more often gay individuals is now long gone. What I once thought was quirky I now find threatening and offensive to biological females. And why do I even feel compelled to say biological female? You men will never be female no matter how hard you try. Leave us and our sports, our bathrooms and motherhood alone. You have no right to shove your freak fantasies in our faces and demand rights. You’re male. Embrace your birth gender and if you feel compelled to dress as a woman in public be prepared for the blowback.

 To sign off: the interpretive mechanism everybody uses relies on this frame of reference: Idea Essence Appearance You abstract the form-giving essence from phenomenal appearances and represent it to the mind, which can then rationalise essences and form-giving ideas for representational realism and identitarian essentialism by making them intelligible and communicable (which appearances are not.) The individual is individuated by the essence, not the appearance. Appearances are “copies without an original” or simulacrum. This is the dogmatic “Image of Thought” inherited from metaphysics as absolute Platonism. So, the form-giving essence is independent as self-acting, self-existing beyond appearances and only representational rationalism can identify it. This is the essence of man, according to metaphysics. Some alien entity moves the body – which is otherwise dead meat or mechanistic automata – as immaterial animism and articulation. The form-giving essence as self-existing is the immaterial animae immortalis as rational-causal external and eternal essence.… Read more »

Well, “down to earth” — I completely agree; but you and I are not alone. It might be a thankless task, but I want to remind people that the Human in general rejected earthly life millennia ago, long before Plato formalised our collective intellectual architecture as <Idea: Essence: Simulacra> and nobody has grounded our thinking in the body as limited, finite, mutable and in permanent process of flux. The Human rejected the bodily senses as either irrational or evil, and gradually sucked up into the mind. The collective rational architecture is deluded, but everybody uses it because it is institutionalised in all the ‘rational’ social structures we live by. If you bring things “down to earth” and describe the Human as they are right now then that description will be dismissed also. People act is if they have individual essences, but they do not.

I think the explanation is even simpler than that:

Most children experience this envy to some extent, and that’s why many of them bully other children.

I reckon today’s problems all stem from the fact that envious children go into politics, where they achieve high office because they are all alike.

That’s why Solomon’s wisdom stood out from the crowd’s mentality. He wasn’t concerned with ‘the crowd’, but with individual development, albeit within the confines of Old Testament religion.

Camille, while TPTB are in control of the media there’ll be no obvious sign of the revolution in thought that has taken place. Neither the internet nor social media is a true indicator– too many paid commenters, even AI commenters.

The polling data indicates few Americans have any confidence in media, govt, medicine or science at large. But if you want to know what they really think, you have to converse w the random people you come into contact with, as I do. It is heartening to hear their opinions.

We told the others in the bar to be careful as it’s a Trans not a real woman. Initially there were arguments. The Trans person heard us and lost it. Started screaming at one of my mate’s. He quipped your hysterical screaming is more woman like and convincing than your tits. The bar owner , a woman tough as nails,eventually kicked them out. The conversation turned to certain woman that befriend encourage Trans folk as they did/do with homosexuals and white knight men.

Nah, you’re just making that up.

The Bible doesn’t say anything against women or their equal rights with everyone else, every living soul, that is.

It doesn’t say anything against abortion. The original Hebrew says Do not murder.

The Bible doesn’t say anything about homosexuals either. Homosexuality was put in some American Bibles in the 1940’s. It’s a mistranslation and misunderstanding. The Bible speaks about souls, not about how to divide humanity based on their bodies.

You think it’s murder to abort a fetus or an embryo, well there are people who think it’s murder to go fishing or eat animals. People… people’s ideas.

At the time of bible there were not organised abortion.
This idea of gays, abortion “right”, hookers, is depopulation and destruction of marriage and the family, which are against God’s established institution and wish.

It is anti-God, an attack on life itself. Thus you cannot find a specific rule in the bible saying abortion for convenience is forbidden because its obvious.

The bible says clearly you are allowed to eat both fish and animals.

Unwanted pregnancies happen in monogamous marriages too. They happen whether there’s love or not.

You think the Bible talks about mundane matters and what people are physically allowed to do and what not. I think it talks about spirit. So do not commit adultery means Do not go whoring with Satan, demons, unclean spirits.

Our genitals or pregnancies have nothing to do with it.

Firstly, you’ve equated my comments, regarding abortion, with a religious conviction. When it’s not wholly based in that.

It’s about respect for human life & wanting a world where this practice wasn’t so common place & stopped and wasn’t reached for for any unwanted pregnancy. You know what some countries/pharmaceuticals companies do with the fetuses?

I don’t speak for God or any US State politicians as I’m neither or a US citizen.

I’ll just never agree that killing unwanted…pick a word….is something a supposed civilised people’s should do. It’s like a disdain for life.

I have been in Africa and Latin where children is a plus. Lived in a Latin single mother’s house of 11 children, 7 her own 4 from other family.

But other family was nearby. Poor yes but free and happy, the children were all a gift as they helped and were educated in house and garden keeping. All went clean and well dressed to school and had a vary of small jobs outside.

Its another way of seeing children, as a gift from above. Always happiness, awareness and laughter and help in the house.
A full life is lived although with small money.

Respect for human life is fine, but embryo is not human life, not yet at least. Spontaneous abortions are very common, but also can be induced by many methods known to mankind for thousands of years. Christianity colonizing the world has mainly destroyed traditional methods of both contraception and abortion. When women were not allowed to abort, infanticide became more common. Respect for human life means respecting the woman’s life. She’s the one who is alive and human. The verses you refer to in the Bible say nothing about sexual relationships or homosexuality. Those verses are not about sexual immorality but about spiritual impurity. The whole idea of scripture is to become pure in spirit. It has nothing to do with our sexual organs or how we use them. It is not about physical activity but it is about spiritual actions. Let me explain. Righteousness belongs to the kingdom of… Read more »

Which I find a misinterpretation of the meaning of the ten commandments and the seven deadly sins of which you fail to address. I find that a materlistic take that gives one an excuse to behave as one pleases in ones physical form as they can then declare, conveniently, but my Spirit is pure.

Nothing in the Ten commandments speaks about abortion. You’re just making all that up. You’ve conflated embryos with human life and abortions with the sin of murder, but that just shows your illogical thoughts. If abortion is murder, then God is the biggest murderer. Embryos consist of cells, which may be alive, but so are other cells, material in the body. To call it human life is a misnomer. The ten commandments are for spirit, not for some theocratic social order. Nothing in the Ten commandments speaks about social, cultural or material things. God’s guidance to spirit, the Teaching, is spiritual. Only the pure soul is sinless. The body is not the soul. Soul is spirit, and the body is material. Harm to the body is not something the pure soul does. But what is harmful and what, in fact, is not, you think you’re the judge of that? For… Read more »

Abortion endorses promotes murder so women can sit in a cubicle and pursue their ‘natural’ calling of furthering their careers and be debt slaves, just like men. Contributing to a system that is driving us all away from truly raising families as the priority for us all.

Whereby being an economic debt slave is prioritised over being a Mother. As being a Mother primarily is seen as some sort of cop out. Abortion is a tool to encourage promiscuity & destroy traditional families imo

Children, however, need parental guidance (not governmental, nor so-called health care bureaucracy interference), and they need boundaries.  As do adult trans people and the school establishment who wish to brainwash children into following their example. That’s not on, and the banning of this does not violate the rights of any trans adult. The “gender binary” IS false – that’s verifiable by the fact that every era and every culture believes something different as regards how a woman should behave and appear in public (they never ponder how a man should behave).

The terminal stunting “of the lower class stock” is the true aim. The psychological deformation came first as the successive generations found it increasingly difficult to maintain even the appearance of a responsible family base in the face of increasingly encouraged narcissism. And then the development of healthy sexual relationships was also under attack via belligerent assaults on the self-respect of youngsters who were made increasingly self-critical to the point of self-loathing via the machinations of the consumer driven culture. I now even suspect that the vast emphasis on “gay culture” has a sinister side in its obvious effect on declining reproduction.

It’s not possible for ‘normal’ people to plan in ‘years, decades and centuries’. The power disparity is too great. the 1% can smash economies every decade or so and do. Every economic crash is planned, which sees millions lose their jobs, their homes and their savings. The 1% NEVER smash their own asset bases. If they did, you wouldn’t see planned crashes very often.

1929 was planned. So was the oil shock of 1973. The 1981 crash was planned, so was the one in 1989. 2000 crash and the Millennium bug scam were planned. 2008 was planned. This pandemic/climate/global crash scam underway now was meticulously planned.

You can only plan in years, decades and centuries if you have huge economic, political and social clout.

Has anybody come up with the determinable essence of <woman> yet; the set of essential and immutable attributes that make not just any <woman> a <woman> (and not some other kind of thing); but that particular <woman>; the “what it is” or “that which it is to be” a particular and singularised <woman> (to ti esti, to ti en einai)? No? Plenty of people seem to think they know what the essence is, but what is it as a determinable and definable sentence? “What is a woman” essentially? Are we sticking with risible inuendo or a more biologic definition about bodyparts or gametes? Or essential and immutable roles in society? Nobody seems to know in a determinable way that would fit the dominant interpretive mechanism; whichever is identitarian essentialism. Meanwhile, in the rest of the world: the dominant interpretive mechanism has been in play at the civilisational level all day.… Read more »

I’m not so sure today’s three-year-olds can do that any more.

The people around them don’t look anything like the people around three-year-olds used to fifty years ago…

In fact when one of my daughters was about 4 or 5 years old, she got a rather short haircut from a young hairdresser who liked to do cool things with people’s hair.
Much to my daughter’s annoyance, strangers started telling us what a lovely lad she was…
She is now a lovely lass again.

You completely miss the point: there is no essence of anything. For rational discourse to make sense: there must be. You take the essence from the appearance and represent it as all the enlightened theories we have. No essence: no science: no knowledge: just speechsounds. This has nothing to do with ‘postmodernism’; this is modernism. The Age of Reason is posited on essentialism. Which is exactly why it became the age of unreason. The image of thought is abstract idealism that says nothing about anything reactively, violently, and defensively without ever knowing the presuppositions they are reactively defending. On the other end of the scale: billions of people have no such problem building the rational essence of man as globalisation. The language works well enough as a species system, but our sentences can’t reflect that with localised, rationalised, moralised, linearised thinking. Nobody wants to do nonlinear dynamics: but you cannot… Read more »

You know the dominant meme here — “Blame Them.” Nobody wants to get into the unfounded presuppositions that found our interpretive mechanics. Elsewhere, that very rational-causal reductive mechanistic truth-ideology has been identified as protofascist. Hell, sometimes people come right and say it as Simon Elmer did by profoundly misattributing Roland Barthes. So who else tried to counter that? I’ve lost count of the times that people misattribute their quotes. Hell, Corbett even called it weaponisation of attribution. My favourite is Debord: nobody knows what the Spectacle is — it’s the language. If nobody gets the canonical <Idea: Copy: Simulacra> behind our discourse, then nobody can remediate this glaring and fatally flawed error in our thinking. The simulacra is the real; the abstracted essence is a simulation; the Idea that the essence is compared to away from the appearance is nothing but pure imaginability-only.

Nature’s monthly miracle: preparation of a fresh nursery for a possible newly fertilised egg; and the regeneration of decidua with plentiful new bloodvessels to feed the new life when the egg proves to have been fertilised : one of Nature’s triumphs of delicate care that looks like wastefulness. Sexual recombination of genes was a great discovery for generating variety in Nature. Yeast have 8 mating types and other primitive micro-organisms might have even more. Nevertherless, Nature has settled for 2 sexes in most species. It is idle and superfluous to subdivide sexual function further.

The frat boy left doesn’t live pay check to paycheck, but many do. They feared not being able to feed their families.” Now that took me back to a revelation that was in some ways more devastating than the Left’s reaction to covid. The Left hated the truckers.

It didn’t surprise me to see Guardianistas or other “lifestyle leftists” attacking the truckers, but I was still naive enough in those days to believe the World Socialists were sincere in their claims to be defenders of the working class.

But then I read headlines like this:

Canadian media and Conservatives promote far-right trucker protest to push for scrapping of remaining anti-COVID-19 measures
and realized what utter scum they were and are.

They love the working class in the abstract, as some individual puzzle piece of their larger ideology, but if the working class doesn’t take its marching orders from this pathetic, miserable bunch of Trotskyist control freaks, they have nothing bit contempt for them.

It may seem like hyperbole but I think it’s true and I’m sure that Simon Elmer said it first: the trans rights brigade are the new Brown Shirts. The Rainbow Shirts as it were. They, like the transgender category itself, are utterly manufactured*. Thus these trans-right protests are as phony as the “Just Stop Oil” puppet show. *There is a genuine condition called gender dysphoria in which the unfortunate subject feels trapped in the wrong sex. It is fortunately a rare condition but the current executive arm of the parasite class have embarked on a vast and hugely funded campaign to create the impression (with, of course, the “legitimate scientific evidence” from the now clearly bought “scientific establishment”) that gender dysphoria is the norm for everyone. Indeed, a tweet from one trans propagandist implies that “gender dysphoria” is a term that should be abandoned since it must now be “admitted”… Read more »

Off topic: Perhaps I’m losing it completely now but twice now whilst watching the TV news I thought I was watching a CGI effect. Once yesterday when there was an interview between a newsreader and some official whose name I didn’t catch. The latter’s head seemed oddly plastic and the lower face (nose and mouth) seemed too big for the top part. And again today with a survey of the wreckage from the Hawaiian wildfires. One sequence showing passing scenes of devastation looked cartoonish. Could these channels be experimenting with inserting phony footage?

Didn’t the entire look of television news reporting change in 2020 – from the studio and professional linkages before, to this new grainy “low budget” presentation with the blurred face that appears to speak from some suburban living room? Of course that transition was “justified” by being an implementation of the “necessary covid distancing rules”. Which very conveniently led to this “grimy” appearance which would allow fakes to be more easily manufactured. We have been living in this “poor man’s newsroom” ever since.
