>>3744>I feel like this discussion was a long time coming and I'm really interested in do seeing what people have to say about it.
Nah, honestly, it generally attracts drama and whole threads of people projecting their ideas of the other sex onto the matter as a fact, like every discussion ever involving sexes. I've seen it countless times. It generally goes like this:
1)- Wizardchan-tier, "neets", will tell you it's impossible for women to be NEET.
2)- Some so-called female NEETs will tell you they actually exist (on a side note, I personally always see them on relationships/drugs treads, so they APPEAR to be more social, but this could come as a side effect in a relationship you generally specify the sex of your partner so it's not a good meter; can't say the same of the drug retards).
3)- They proceed to bullshit each other ignoring actual points and just discussing for the sake of having the biggest dick.
On the middle of that is people who tell you that sex doesn't really matter as long as you fit the NEET description, and then somebody argues whether housewives aren't actually NEETs or not, which later derives on "NUH DUH SUCKING UR HUSBANDS DICK IS A JOB!!!" memes and so forth until the thread becomes a pile of vomit.
>Also, why do you think these differences exist?
Honestly, I don't understand why people make such a fuss over it. If you are NOT in employment, education, or training, you ARE a NEET REGARDLESS
of social skills, situation or position. As to answer that question, it's generally a case of "always greener on the other side". Generally in NEET communities the more miserable you appear to be, the higher your status, so naturally you look for things that you lack in other parties and use that in your favor so you can circlejerk about how poor and sad your life is and why everybody should stroke your dick.
Now, as for society's opinion, as far as I can see, they're both despised (talking on Japan and my country here, can't talk for others) simply because they are leeching money off the government even though they should be capable of being productive. Think of those women who had like 9 kids only to get welfare per each head, that's literally the main argument people again these gov. aid plans use around here, so it's not like women have it easier than men, who also have their fair share of social pressure on not being able to sustain their own lives. As for young women who aren't mothers yet, I haven't read enough about them so I can't say for sure how they're perceived by society (could mean they're either ignored/summed to the total of NEET); but if you told me somebody spends their days away partying/staying in home and not looking for employment even though they're capable of it, I call 'em NEETs regardless of genitals, so I assume it's the same for big sammy up there; could be wrong though (if anybody can provide more info that'd be cool).
