I felt much the same (though I didn't say anything, not being in a leadership position) at the neighborhood swimming pool once, when a few teenaged boys emerged from the locker room, shoving each other and laughing, and calling each other "Pervert! Pervert!" It looked like just juvenile guy-type fun, but all I could think about was what a REAL pervert had done to me. I quit the pool club after that.

You said what needed to be said; I would have done the same.

Most kids simply lack the cognitive skills to realize saying something like that is wrong. Even adults struggle with it sometimes. I would not worry about others "putting the pieces" together. My first thought was that the go-to reaction from others might be that you have a female relative who experienced this---as we all know---society still does not want to think it also happenes to males despite PSU

You did the right thing.

I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made. ---FDR

...cuddos, Davo. And thanks for helping the kids understand and hear from someone they look up to that rape is serious and its effects long-lasting. And if the numbers are correct, there were more than just you in the crowd who was triggered. Rape sucks.
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
