Selfies

Point and shoot - at yourself.
Article text
Only selfie from me are my legs (and covered up)
The epidemic that is selfies is just staggering. Social media is full of it. I cringe at my own image so I am fortunate not to have the compulsion to continuously take a selfie. They have even given it a name - Selfitis. The American Psychiatric Association (a real body) had classified “selfitis” as “the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one's self and post them on social media”, further defining three strands of 'selfitis': 'borderline', 'acute' and 'chronic' - depending on the frequency. However, some beautiful people and they too are art, so keep those selfies coming. Me though, I'm going to stick with pointing my camera elsewhere.
