As we’ve been reporting here on eWn, there are numerous accusations of sexual assault, among other things, in the wrestling industry this week. This has all come to light due to the ongoing #SpeakingOut campaign on Twitter. TJ Perkins took to Twitter today reveal that it’s not just the male wrestlers that are doing it. He said,

“I’ve always felt that double standard is wrong. On the flipside, I shared 2 stories last night with a loved one of myself at 15 being taken advantage of/pressured by older girls in wrestling who were 20-22 at the time. Hard to share cuz men are expected to be proud of such things. What makes it tough in the other direction is guys are both expected to be proud of such things, and also shamed for the sexist nature of being proud of such things. But it felt uncomfortable, nervous, empty, etc as anyone would feel in that situation. Difficult to express. I definitely don’t suggest it’s 50/50 or anything, and I absolutely don’t want to take any focus away from anyone who is sharing regardless of gender. There’s obviously double standards existing both ways and everyone’s experiences are different and should be viewed individually.”
