Why are people so surprised I was raised by gay parents?

I grew up in California which I know is a rather liberal state but I didn't really think it was much different elsewhere.

But my third year going to college in Texas, when people find out I have two dads they always say something like "You? But you're so normal"
Well ya. Do they think all gay people are terrible parents who traumatize their children? What's so shocking about that.

And then a lot of people say things like "Well it's not what I believe is right, but good for you"
well exactly is it that they believe? I was adopted when I was 5. I only have vague memories of foster care but I know that it sucked. My sister was adopted when she was 2 from an orphanage in India. Do they think either out lives would have been significantly better with straight parents or no parents?
