Double Standard for Reporting Rape?

Let me preface this by giving the definition of sexual assault as per the Canadian Criminal Code: "forceful sexual contact without consent." Just to be clear, this can be anything the person did not give permission for and can include: anal sex, forced oral sex using objects, a pat on the bum, etc.

Just observing this from the information given from the reports: 

Four women, 190-200 pounds each. 
One male
Silver Honda SUV
If this is all true, he could have been sandwiched in the middle and sexually assaulted. Let me reiterate that sexual assault is any forced sexual contact that that has not been consented to

It’s really interesting to see people’s reaction to this. #ListenToYourselves cp24.com/news/man-sexua… via @cp24SEAN K
Here are some alternate perspectives, that seem to get overlooked. 
A man was sexually assaulted by 4 women and people think it’s weird that he’d see it as assualt… vice versa and this’d be taken seriously.تريشاونا والترز
How is this funny? Cause you find it sexually degrading as a man, to be assaulted/abused by a woman? Get your fckin heads out of your assesallyson o.
So disappointed in humanity reading the comments made on new articles about the young man who was sexually assaulted by four women.לֵאָה
Man sexually assaulted by 4 women in downtown Toronto. Yes, this happens, and it’s fucking appalling. cp24.com/news/man-sexua…Lori-Anne
The alleged suspects are each 190-200 pounds, as mentioned. Apparently, some believe that whether a sexual assault is enjoyable or not depends on the how the suspect(s) looks physically. 
man i’d feel weird as shit telling the cops i was sexually assaulted by women… but if they a bunch of wolverine lookin hoes, then its coolThe Pirate King

It’s true that it’s rare for males to report being sexually assaulted by a woman or women. Perhaps the reaction shown here is partly why. 
Usually the other way around–Man sexually assaulted by 4 women after leaving club | cp24.com/news/man-sexua…A. MONTEFERRANTE
