    he may have learnt to joke about it from someone else, you should talk to him and tell him it's wrong, people tend to not bother teaching teenage boys that joking about rape is wrong, and therefore they continue making jokes and it just spreads further :/

    My brothers are similar to yours, they watch a lot of YouTube videos and unfortunately pick up a lot of bad language. They used to throw around the word rape without actually knowing that it was a bad thing. For example one of them used to think it was the equivalent of hitting someone, like 'shut up or I'll rape you'. I've since told them that it's a bad thing and they should never think it's funny and they have now stopped. Your brother may know what it is but not that it's wrong, don't tell your mum and worry her just make it known to your brother that it's wrong.

    I'm freaking out, my mum just came home. I am in such a dilemma, I don't want to worry my mum but I don't know how to tackle my brother about this.

    Oh my god. I have no words. My SIX YEAR OLD brother just asked me "Do you like Elisha (my 2 year old little sister)?", and I just replied asking why and if he likes her, and in he said no without any thought. So I said "Why?" and you won't believe what he said. Guys I am NOT JOKING by the way, I'm not some sort of troll or anything, he actually said this. "I want to kill her with a knife." Shocked, I said "when?" and he replied "tomorrow morning". I know he's six years old and could be joking, but then he started asking me questions about prison, so things like "I won't go to jail because I am only little" and stuff like that. I'm about to tell my mum to see what she thinks. The thing is, he's never been an aggressive boy, so I'm really feeling uneasy right now.

    ngl I laughed at this. I could have dealt with this more efficiently than my current one.

    Honestly, just take you little brother in a room far away from your parents and just tell him that this is wrong and that it's nothing to joke about - you don't have to go in detail but maybe suggest that its consequences are similar to that of murder or something and he would get the idea. He's 11 years old so he isn't that young that he wouldn't understand you. At that age, they can easily learn what's wrong and what's right and usually it sticks with them for life.
