Personally, i hate the term grooming. If you groom a pet the word conveys love and caring. There is no love and caring in the activities that lead up to raping a child.

I have some so called feminine tendencies too. I'm mostly Gay in my sexual history and most of the time, a "bottom". I use to envy the sports-hero boys in high school too. I thought of myself as weak, less of a man at times.
