Like it or not, selfies are ingrained in our culture. Old and young, male and female, fully basic and slightly basic — most of us have held out our phones to get a picture of ourselves. And while it’s really just the easiest way to portray a version of ourselves that looks a lot cooler/prettier/more fun than we really are, the selfie is a mostly-harmless form of self-expression/narcissism.
Until now. Because this.
That statue, located in Sugar Land, Texas, is part of a 10 piece city-wide public art donation that intends to show common activities. Because it was donated, the statue wasn’t paid for by taxpayers (thankfully) and has no real “agenda” besides being a “fun” tourist attraction that gives people the opportunity to take — you guessed it — selfies. And as ridiculous as that thing is, you have to admit taking a selfie is as common as it gets these days. Still, this guy makes the most important point…
