On train back from London yesterday and overheard a conversation between three young teen boys, as follows.

Boy1: Lucy just text me, I am definitely going to rape her tonight

Boy2: You think she is that fit?

Boy1: Yeah, really want to rape her

Boy2: I prefer Becky I think <long ramble about the things he wants to do to Becky>

They were probably about 12/13, were well spoken, Jack Wills wearing types. I am sure (hoping) he didn't actually mean rape but meant sex. I was really tempted to say something but was on my own with 18mnth old DD and couldn't really think of a sentence I could leave as a parting shot about it.

Would you have said anything? If so, what? I wanted to shake some respect into them! I am sure it was a bravado thing but it made my skin crawl.

yeah I think I prob would have said something. Tho they most likely would have just sniggered back fuck offy sorts of stuff

I would have said something if I was on my own without the dc's. Not shouted at them, just a few words.

I wanted to ask them if they really understood what they were saying but as you say, I suspect they would have just told me to fuck off!

Yes, I get irritated when young unsuse the word 'text' when they mean 'texted'.

shock can't believe the word's used that lightly (at least I hope that's what was happening)

I get slightly more irritated by the use of rape than text/ed

It would depend how belligerent I was feeling, but tbh some 40 year old, finger wagging matron would have probably given them a good excuse to snigger and exercise their vile vocabularly even further. I hope their adult selves look back in shame.

I [shocked] with you. I think I would have said in a very loud voice to my DD, like lets get away from these nasty boys.

They're probably just mouthy and ignorant rather than full of evil intentions. I bet Becky, whoever she is, has far more sense and could dismiss them with a withering glance.
