In October, we wrote about the newly re-designed nickel, and how the government sought artists who would create a “softer” image of Thomas Jefferson. Now, media reports say the new “Return to Monticello” nickel is debuting, this week.
We liked the old, masculine Jefferson nickel, much better than the new post-op transsexual version (see images below) . . . just as we like the old Bruce Jenner much better than “softer”, post-plastic surgery version. Jenner, like the old nickel version of Jefferson, should have grown old gracefully–without getting “work” done.
Why was this new, metrosexual nickel necessary? As we asked before, feminizing Jefferson–what’s next?
