I don’t remember the first time I became aware of hormones, but I remember the first time some boy in my sixth-grade class responded to a small outburst of frustration from me with an indignant What, are you on your period? I stood in silence, letting my cheeks burn red and armpits gather with sweat. I didn’t know. I could have been. At 12 I didn’t know enough about my cycle to know if I was on my period in the way he meant it or not. With my apps, I could guard myself from the insult by preventing the outburst in the first place. If I could preempt the swing, then I could lessen it, deny it, suppress it.
Allison Theresa & Beatriz Kaye are 2GIRLS1COVEN. Brought together through the black magic of an internet roommate search, A+B find that their lives are better lived together. They’re obsessed with all things culture (think less high brow and more just… high) and want to know your sun, moon and rising signs. (A-Aries-Libra-Aries, B-Leo-Taurus-Leo). Allison + Beatriz’s post bong rip fever dream is to create a space where everyone can share a story, a blunt, and a hot take.
