Homeschoolers and socialization

Why is it that people automatically assume that if you are homeschooling your kids are going to miss out socially and turn out to be social misfits?  I know an awful lot of homeschoolers who prove the exact opposite.  They are some of the most social and well adjusted people that I know!  Sure, there probably are some homeschoolers that struggle socially, but there are also public schooled children that struggle socially.  A lot of the time it's personality, not schooling, that causes the struggles.

That's what's on my mind tonight.

It really makes no sense at all, does it. I always wonder why people think this. I know many times my kids' friends have had to miss out on social functions because they're at home doing homework. So, after being in class all day, they're now at home all evening...yet....everyone asks us about our socialization. Seems very odd to me.
