Next time one is spewed out, calmly say with a steely look in your eye that you don't find that type of humour amusing. If they ask why (which they will, even though it's none of their fucking business), I would advise saying that someone close to you was assaulted.

If you are comfortable with them knowing you yourself were assaulted, tell them so, or say "itís none of your business", because if you choose the latter, they'll probably make an assumption anyway.

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I am glad that you were able to talk to him and I hope things start getting a little bit better.
