Yes there are gay Aggies out there, I knew several when I was in school. Yes they kiss in public. Why is this a big deal?

I think the main reason Horns are laughing about it is because A&M has spent decades characterizing Austin the way you did -- as a bunch of queers (or "whorns").

A&M is also regarded as one of the least gay friendly campuses in America. Sheesh, A&M was the defendant in the first federal case forcing colleges to allow LGBT groups. There's kind of a track record here.
