WATCH Key & Peele’s The Office Homophobe

By OckyDub | Posted Dec 12 2013 | 18 Comments  


I was shocked to discover a 3 minute and 36 second video that encapsulates the struggle that Cypher Avenue has had to endure from the stereotypical effeminate gay public. The brilliant sketch comedy show Key & Peele of Comedy Central was able to visually bring to life through comedy the dynamic that exist between loud, attention seeking, flamboyant gay men and masculine gay men.  When many gay men use the word “regular” i.e. “I’m looking for a regular guy” they are referring to the non-flamboyant man in this sketch played by Peele.   It’s hard for the general gay mainstream public to understand, we are not internally homophobic, externally homophobic, or even effemiphobic we are just “phobic” of you.

    OMFG!!!! this is the one! This is the Comedy sketch we needed! I hope a lot of straight people are able to take the lesson this sketch provides. This is part of the struggle for non flamboyant men….NOTICE I didn’t say “masculine” I said non flamboyant. Meaning fem dudes can be cool too without being a super gay jackass….

    Watched this clip and it had me weak. Mad funny but it reminded me of me and a coworker. I definitely felt Peele’s characters pain.

      Not even flamboyant. Just plain out asshole… the scrotum cozies OD killed me tho.

    What a great sketch and a great topic for discussion. Where do we find balance and respect amongst ourselves? I’ve been in similar situations throughout the years and never really dealt with it. I would basically walk away from flamers, but some could’ve made great friends if I had given them a chance.
