I was frightened and disgusted by him as he was a big street-fighting Glaswegian Celtic fan. He used to slide his fingers up my shorts when I was was called to the front of the class to have my French homework critiqued in the first form. He perpetrated a lot of this "minor" abuse in public to create a climate where his more egregious assaults in private could be normalised.
He was also a sports master and many of his assaults were in the changing rooms at the schools (rather remote) football pitches. He even assaulted a friend at home while bathing him after gaining his parents' trust.
Fortunately I was rubbish at footer and never got "extra coaching", nor were my parents hospitable enough to pour whiskey down his throat when he made one of his evening social calls so he tended to go elsewhere.
So I guess that coloured my view towards homosexuals generally for a long time. I'm proper gay-friendly now...
