And the Queen of selfies picked today of all days to announce it, too! Will others follow her lead?
“I would like to be in real time a little bit more,” she said.
One of the more annoying aspects of cell phone culture was the obsession of some to take their own picture.
It spawned its own word … ‘selfie’.
Some loved it… others thought it was another turning point in our culture becoming superficial and unthinking.
There was a hit song mocking selfies.
Even World Leaders were part of the problem. Merkel takes selfies with Refugees — the very issue that threatens the collapse of her coalition —
Justin Trudeau was nothing less than giddy while Bromancing with BHO…

Seriously, Justin, dial it back. You have a wife.
Admittedly, Obama set the bar for little Justin pretty low by posing for a selfie — at a State Funeral.

Even Michelle had sense enough to be embarrassed at that point.
But if anyone is the ‘queen’ of the selfie, it would have to be Kim Kardashian.
How many times has one of her pictures ‘broken the internet’?
She’s announced that she’s ‘done’ with being the queen of the selfie.
Why is that ironic? It just so happens that today is…
What prompted this change? Here it is in her own words:

Is she done taking pictures entirely?
It doesn’t look that way. But it’s probably going to be for promoting her brand more than the belief that the world absolutely HAS to see what she’s doing RIGHT THIS INSTANT!
And if teens with phones welded to their hands hold her up as the icon we think they do… maybe they’ll rethink just how many pics they take of themselves… and maybe the selfie craze can die a natural death.
Here’s a brand new book on how to be a Warrior Chick by Regis Giles — daughter of our very own Doug Giles:
From the book:
Do I want this to be happening? Why is his hand on my waist? Is he really fondling my breasts? What do I do? Why is he in a bathrobe? Why is he taking off the bathrobe? God, I need to get out of here! I thought this was going to be professional.
No one, unless they’ve been in the same situation, can ever really understand the stress and self-doubt one goes through when sexual harassment occurs.
Regis Giles’ new book will teach you how to escape the world of #MeToo victim and become the #WarriorChick you were meant to be!
Think Miss Giles knows a thing or two about taking care of herself? You’d better believe it.
She and her sister Hannah were the very first two female Valente Bros black Belts. That’s a feather in your cap, for sure.
She’s got a website ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Guns‘ and she had it LONG before it was ‘trendy’ to talk about #MeToo.
She’s also a world-class huntress.
