Misandry in the Media - Saudi Rape Case

"The woman's offence was meeting a former boyfriend, who she had asked to return pictures he had of her because she was about to marry another man. The couple were sitting in a car when a group of seven men kidnapped them and raped them both, lawyers in the case told the Arab News. The woman and the former boyfriend were originally sentenced to 90 lashes each for being together in private. The attackers received sentences ranging from 10 months to five years in prison, and 80 to 1000 lashes each."

I've heard endlessly about the injustice of a woman who was raped being sentenced to any sort of punishment for having broken the law before being raped. Everyone is talking about it.

What I have not heard, not even once, and did not know until today, is that the boyfriend was also raped and received the exact same sentence as the girlfriend.

How many of you knew that BOTH of them were raped and given the same sentence? I'm curious.
