DALLAS - Ok, we get it. The selfie is as mesmerizing to this generation as reality TV. And thanks to the selfie stick, it'll take your selfie game to new heights.

The main purpose of this expandable gadget is to do what your arm can't, like turning selfies into usies or getting a pic of your entire outfit all by yourself.

But here's a news flash to those stuck on the stick. The Smithsonian in D.C. is the latest to announce it's a no-no to use your stick in Julia Child's Kitchen or in front of Dorothy’s shoes.

And now museums and venues right here in DFW are banning it too.

Yeah, you've got to use your own arm to snap selfies at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. They say the stick raises "safety and space concerns" and could probably  damage their exhibits.

The Modern Art Museums in Dallas and Fort Worth doesn't want you to bring your selfie stick either.

Yeah, a hundred likes on Facebook isn't worth messing up a Picasso.

So, are venues like the AAC or AT&T Stadium next?

Think about the people behind you before you pull out a 51 inch stick to snap pics at a Mavs game or Chris brown's concert next week?

That perfect pic isn’t worth the struggle!
