Will it work with Apple Thunderbolt Display?
The display appears to be hard-wired with a male plug.
Since this cable is male-to-male I don't see how it could be used.
Can it perhaps go from the Mac into the female port on the back of the display?

No, your right.
As the Apple Thunderbolt Display has a hard-wired Tbolt cable, you cannot use this to connect a Mac to the display unfortunately.
You can only use the female port on the back of the display to plug this optical cable into, and then connect other SELF-POWERED Tbolt devices to it.

Just to be clear:
Can I connect a Apple Cinema display with a 33ft cable to a Mac Mini. While using a BT keyboard and mouse?
