Hey guys. So my brother is gonna be 20 in a week, and hes 2 years younger than me. He takes weight training and so when he "horseplays" i have no way of forcing him off without getting hysterical, but thankfully he hasn't done anything so bad that he could go to jail for it yet. A little backstory. When I was 15 my uncle touched me inappropriately. Nothing severely emotionally scarring, but enough to make me freak out if any man touched me. I'm even wary of hugging my guy friends that are straight. So a few years ago my brother developed this habit of touching my thigh and going "hey baby," and I would panic. He "didn't get" why I would freak out and thought he was being funny. I talked to him about it, it did nothing, i talked to my mom about it and she didnt believe me, she thought I was being tooo sensitive. SO finally last year he moved out of the province for a blessed 7 months, coming back only for family gatherings. It's to the point where I avoid being alone with him if I can. He did it today too, he decided he wanted to horseplay and grabbed at my chest and "didn't get" why I all but had a full-blown panic attack at him. The thing that worries me that it's not just me. He "horseplays" with my two female cousins, aged 9 and 12. they touch him inappropriately and in turn he does the same thing. My mom gives him hell for it, but he doesnt listen and claims theyre "just fooling around" I'm really worried and scared of him. I don't even hate him, I'm just terrified of what he might do to my cousins. Hes coming back home to stay for the next 3 months, and thats part of why I'm trying to move out as quickly as possible. I don't know how to approach the problem, i could really use some advice guys.
