Un mito que me fascina

Lilith es un mito que incomoda a la mayoría de los hombres ya que los deja como niños malcriados que corren a llorar con papi cuando una mujer fuerte no les cumple sus caprichos. Aquí la historia tomada de Femina:

Did you know that Adam had a wife before Eve? No, she isn't mentioned in the Bible and the story is that while Eve is written, Lilith is spoken and hence the details are hazy. This is what I could find.
According to Jewish folklore, Lilith was Adam's first wife. God made them from a single form of clay, as equals, and when he had completed them he
separated them with one swift cut. Lilith and Adam were anxious to be joined again, so Adam asked Lilith to lie down beneath him. Lilith wasn't keen and challenged Adam wanting to know why she had to be underneath when they were equals. Why did he have to dominate when they were two halves made of the same clay? Adam tried to force her, but they were also of equal strength and he did not succeed. So Adam turned to God for help, lamenting about Lilith's defiance and refusal to serve him. She was banished from the Garden of Eden and turned into a demoness.
Adam was then given a second wife, Eve, who was fashioned from his rib to ensure her obedience to her man. And the rest is Biblical history.

So, there you have it- the story of Lilith, Adam's first wife and the world's very first feminist.
