    Luckers (7 January 2011)

    Pillow Friends = Friends brought together by an interest in the various types of pillows that exist. Right Brandon?

    Brandon Sanderson (7 January 2011)

    Ha. I'll say that's something I missed on my first few reads.

    Interview: 2011

    Twitter 2011 (WoT) (Verbatim)

    Amy (10 January 2011)

    Is there any chance to see Moiraine & Siuan like that in the near future? :P They're just so cute!!

    Brandon Sanderson (10 January 2011)

    Ha. Well, considering events in The Gathering Storm and Towers of Midnight, I wouldn't expect it.

    AMY (17 JANUARY)

    You know we expect so much from a Moiraine/Siuan meeting, don't you? Cause there'll be a meeting between them in A Memory of Light, right? :P


    Oh, I know. No promises, but at least I'm aware.

    You might also want to ask him about the sexual preferences of Galina, Bain and Chiad. :-)

    Interview: May, 2001

    Robert Jordan

    I don't remember how we got on the subject, but at one point he made mention of the whole lesbian issue. Something to the effect of..."Well, you put fifteen-year old girls in a tower filled with almost entirely women, with their hormones raging on overdrive, keep them away from men, because you can't afford to lose any of them, and what do you think is going to happen?" I think this answers the questions about whether there are really lesbians in Randland, and if they are intentional.

    And for MJJ, as posted by DomA, pillow friends are not just good friends. Oh, they are that, too, but they also get hot and sweaty together and muss up the sheets something fierce. By the way, pillow friends is a term used in the White Tower. The same relationship between men or women elsewhere would be called something else, depending on the country.

    Interview: Oct 6th, 2005

    Robert Jordan

    For jofraz, I have gay and lesbian characters in my books, but the only time it has really come into the open is with the Aes Sedai because I haven't been inside the heads of any other characters who are either gay or bi. For the most part, in this world such things are taken as a matter of course. Remember, Cadsuane is surprised that Shalon and Ailil were so hot to hide that they had been sharing a bed even knowing how prim and proper Cairhienin are on the surface. Well, for many it is just on the surface.

    Interview: Oct 17th, 1994

    Jared S. Samet (31 October 1994)

    Is RJ trying to insinuate that the Red Ajah is made up of lesbians?

    Daniel Rouk

    Someone (Erica?) asked this question at the first Atlanta Signing.

    Robert Jordan

    Jordan said that he doesn't know how this idea caught on. The Red Ajah does have women who hate men, but not all do. He went on to say that its a bad logical jump to say that just because a woman hates men means that she is a lesbian.

    He then went on to say that he had a lesbian friend and they went out together looking for women and made a good team that way. (Erica, do you remember when this was? I have an idea that he meant over in Vietnam.)

    Daniel Rouk

    My impression is that RJ is not in the slightest bigoted about lesbians. He does have theories about female vs male roles in the army though, but that is a different topic.


    Erica Sadun's comments from the Atlanta signing about the Red Ajah and lesbians are here.
