What does Trollop & Apple mean?
As a (bad) feminist, I was being cheeky when I renamed my collective. I tend to change the name when I change URLs. A trollop is “a woman who has many casual sexual encounters or relationships.” The apple is a Biblical nod. When you shorten Trollop & Apple, it becomes T&A, an acronym for “tits & ass.” I liked the wordplay.
