These guys and the neighbor

When a neighborhood event draws everyone outside - namely a car hitting the light pole in front of our house, we get to meet the neighbors.

The guy diagonal to us - he has 3 kids, whom he is very strict with. He's a police officer and his wife is a teacher. She's friendlier than him, and many neighbors have said that. He never waves when we see him.

Regardless, we all find ourselves outside. He asks me what was going on. I go over to tell him and introduce myself. He then says "how many of these guys live there?"

Was he referring to the fact that we're gay? These guys. He asked if there were 3 of us. These guys?

Maybe he just misspoke? Maybe he just doesn't have the way with words.
