My only advice is that you stop being a pussy. Kiss the girl of your dreams. Walk into the office of that internship and demand response. Do these things without hesitation, and with a full heart. You're so good, Shane. You just can't see it.
I don’t know how to take this message at all? I don’t know how you meant it, and I don’t want this to come off mean so keep that in mind. But I wouldn’t consider myself a “pussy” at all in regards to any of those subjects. I’ve been in a long process of repairing things with a girl I love so dearly that no one can understand, and I quit my internship which took a lot of guts to do. I know when I’m being taken advantage of and I don’t let it happen. I also know I’m capable of great things, I just have a problem enjoying the present because my mind is always in the future. But thank you

The issue with Fox’s misogyny toward female pilots is that it reinforces the very thing military women already deal with from male counterparts.
And veterans are speaking out.
Read an open letter to Fox about Eric Bolling’s “boobs on the ground” remark, written by U.S. military veterans from the Truman Nat’l Security project:
Before you jump to the standby excuse that you were “just making a joke” or “having a laugh,” let the men amongst our number preemptively respond: You are not funny. You are not clever. And you are not excused. Perhaps the phrase “boys will be boys”—inevitably uttered wherever misogyny is present—is relevant. Men would never insult and demean a fellow servicemember; boys think saying the word ‘boobs’ is funny.
The less obvious implication of your remarks, however, is that by offending an ally and cheapening her contribution, you are actively hurting the mission. We need to send a clear message that anyone, male or female, who will stand up to ISIS and get the job done is worthy of our respect and gratitude.
We issue an apology on your behalf to Major Al Mansouri knowing that anything your producers force you to say will be contrived and insincere. Major, we’re sincerely sorry for the rudeness; clearly, these boys don’t take your service seriously, but we and the rest of the American public do.

they were right. guns don’t kill people. people kill people. people are now illegal and the crime rate is zero
