    Keyword is partial. Whenever the victim contributes to the result, the punishment should be equitably reduced.

    Touch someone inappropriately, and that might leave him enraged enough to deserve a partial justification for killing you.

    Call someone a moron, and that might leave him mad enough to deserve a partial justification for killing you.

    etc

    "Gay panic" as a defence in QLD is legit, as well as that case, sadly, if that's what you're not sure about. It is archaic and it needs to die in the ass. Sadly the weak government chose not to do that. Seems being gay can be so horrific to some people that they cannot be held fully accountable for assaulting or murdering them, the victim must share the blame for being offensive to them.

    If 'gay panic' is essentially a plea of mitigating circumstances under a guilty plea for second-degree murder, wouldn't any reasonable variables be equally covered by sexual harassment and sexual assault criteria?

    I enjoyed the irony of your pointing out how pointless something is. Does that make something pointless x2?

    P.S. "Never underestimate the power of planting the seed of truth in a fertile mind."
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft
