I think this is the case for most monos who move into a poly community through chance or circumstance. I certainly felt and experienced this. I also struggled with people even believing that a person could actually be monogamous LOL!
On the flip side, poly people can catch a lot of abuse and derogatory sentiments from the mono community who often find it impossible to believe a person can be "in love" with two people. So it is definitely a two way street.
