My Unpopular Opinion: Teacher Crush Community
My unpopular opinion is more like a response to how people stereotyped the TCC (Teacher Crush Community) throughout the years. I am a member of the TCC and have been a member for 6 years now.
You can find those posts here
I’m an adult, don’t have a teacher crush anymore, but I continue to run my popular TC blog because a lot of people ask me for advice. I don’t condone to underage relationships in anyway and all of my followers know this. I tell them how to handle having a teacher crush the right way. Definitely not telling them to wear short skirts, to “stay after class,” suck on a lollipop to get their teacher’s attention, ect.
A lot of people think that this community was made so that we can share pictures of our TC and influence each other to have sex with our teacher. You can’t just type “Teacher Crush Community” into the search bar, check out two blogs out of the thousands, and expect to have a general idea of what this community is about. Those who do just that call us naive. Frankly, they’re being ignorant.
This community was made for boys and girls, who have teacher crushes, to not to feel so isolated. Being infatuated with your teacher is something that is kept a secret. 99% of the members in this community don’t want to jeopardize their teacher’s career. Many of us don’t even want to pursue a relationship (even after we are of age and not their student anymore) but many seem to forget, you can’t choose who you catch feelings for. Also, being around your teacher 5 days out of the week for hours at a time, something is bound to happen. It isn’t uncommon to have a crush on your teacher and many keep it a secret that they possess such feelings. Because everybody keeps this common feeling a secret, those who decide to share it with family or friends, they get judged for it.
This is why the Teacher Crush Community was made; to be able to share and relate to people who feel the exact same way without judgement.
