I was a homeschooled born-in, and I'm one of those socially inept jobless losers that some of these replies speak of. I'm not sure if being homeschooled made me socially inept, since I already had trouble making friends when I was still in mainstream elementary school, and I inherit the genes of a long line of socially awkward or antisocial (think clinical definition) weirdos. From what I've seen, in most cases it's practically a requirement to be awkward or off in some way to join the JWs anyway.
My high school dropout parents did nothing to help me with schoolwork, so I was on my own all day every day for years except for enforced bible studies with them. There were few kids in the congregation, so I had no friends. I wasn't allowed to go outside by myself until I was 18. I had a couple luxuries which were visits to the library and having a dial-up internet connection at home. The WWW was new for most people at the time, so there weren't any articles against it in the WT yet. So I discovered TTATT and was able to fade.
Eventually I graduated with a BA in useless studies, while struggling for years with crippling depression and anxiety. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I wouldn't have as much social anxiety or disinterest towards people if I had had more opportunity to get used to being around others back then.
If I think too much about it, I end up hating my parents. I guess homeschooling can be an enriching experience for some families, but mine are proud to be ignorant and brainwashed. The threats, manipulation, and twisted logic they responded with whenever I tried to respectfully express to them any kind of dissenting opinion used to make me feel like I was losing my mind. Their sole concerns were indoctrinating me in their beliefs and keeping me at home so I wouldn't go outside and communicate with worldly people. Because of the years of isolation, I learned to think independently--an unintended consequence as far as they were concerned--but I don't think that kind of experience is healthy for one's sanity. I consider it child abuse and wouldn't inflict it on my own kids, if I ever have any.
