I have been thinking about the Air Force a lot lately..and people have been telling me that the Air Force is very picky and hard to get in. Is this true,and I am kinda offended to here this because it's like people are saying I am not good enough?

I would say that the best thing you can do is go to a recruiting office and do a preliminary interview with one of their recruiters. They will ask you some questions about your background and tell you if you're eligible to enlist.
chairforce is easy to get into. hard to get a good (pilot) job.
airforce is hard to get into. If you dont do well on your ASVAT dont even think about getting any job that you could make a carrer out of

A buddy of mine would've been accepted to the airforce but they said his leg tattoo was too big. It can be covered up by pants but that just made me think they go out of their way to find a reason not to accept a person. He has actually been accepted into the army though and is going to basic this summer.
Not sure if that helps but that is all I know on the subject.
I believe the USAF is more selective the US Army or USMC, but it really depends on the job you want. Applicants are scored on a standardized test, and each job has minimum score that is acceptable, and higher scoring applicants are selected first.
Or that is my understanding of it; but I am not in the US military and thus not overly familiar. I'm an M.O. in the CDN Forces Health Services Group Reserve, and my understanding is based off having talked with U.S. service members while on joint exercises, including USAF members.
Your best bet is to talk to recruiting officer.
Its not hard to get into if you score decent on the ASVAB and dont have a criminal record. Though there more selective then the army which takes anyone with a pulse.
If it's any consolation, they say the USAF's boot camp is by far the easiest of the four branches.
Yes it is easy to get into. Tattoo policy's have been getting stricter though. But other than that if you don't have a criminal record anybody can get in. And yes their boot camp is a joke. I'm in the USMC but my mos school was in lackland where their boot is. Also don't ever join the USMC unless you enjoy having every aspect of your life micromanaged, treated like shit, living in barracks worse than the projects, and pretty much enjoy hating your life.
