That Lilith
Thursday, February 7, 2008

I heard about Lilith before but I didn't know this story:

One story tells of how a daughter of Lilith dwelling in a mirror came to possess a narcissistic young girl. A wife had bought a mirror and hung it in a room of her daughter. The mirror had been hung in a den of demons and a daughter of Lilith resided in it. Whenever the mirror was moved from the haunted house, the demoness within went with it. The girl spent a lot of time gazing at herself in the mirror, each time drawing closer and closer into Lilith's web. The daughter of Lilith watched the young girl's every movement. Biding her time, one day Lilith's daughter slipped out and possessed the girl through the eyes. Seizing control of the girl, Lilith's daughter dominated the girl's every move. Driven by the evil wishes and desires of Lilith's daughter, the girl became promiscuous and ran around with many men.

It's so offensive how women are portrayed as the weak and evil ones in stories like these, which are written by men who just didn't understand.

'Cause we're all such sluts who are jealous of each other anyway, right? It bums me out how there is still such a long way to go for equality. Let's write some new stories, shall we?

there are similar stories in irish folklore where the woman is obsessed by her mirror and comb, or has a bad sexual power over innocent men, even in the telling of Saint Dymphna's story, her father is excused from his abuse of Dymphna by his "temporary insanity." Once she is taken away from him, he regains his sanity and lives a normal life. hmmph!
