In 1999, one year after Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in Laramie, Wyoming, lawyers for one of the defendants attempted to blame ;gay panic; for their client;s actions. The LGBT Bar defines the LGBTQ panic defense as, ;a legal strategy that asks a jury to find that a victim s sexual orientation or gender identity expression is to blame for a defendant s violent reaction, including murder.; In other words: The perpetrator is justifying his or her actions by saying that the victim;s sexual orientation or gender identity caused their loss of control.The judge in the Shepard case deemed the defense inadmissible. Though, as the American Bar Association (ABA) points out, the decision was "not due to the illegitimacy of the gay trans panic defense, but instead due to Wyoming s statutory insanity defense construct.

India on Monday announced a ban on 59 Chinese apps. The government''s intentions were made clear: the time for pussy footing around the China problem is over. Even if the Chinese were to restore status quo ante and return to the positions they held in early April, the rupture will be impossible to mend for years at least. Trust has been broken and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be hard pressed to ask the Indian public to not take the Chinese at their word ever again. Geopolitics is changing forever, and so, it appears, is Indian foreign policy.On Tuesday, the third round of talks takes place between the Indian and Chinese military commanders. The first one was on 6 June, when the Chinese made commitments and broke them, leading to the deadly clash on 15 16 June. A further meeting on 22 June saw a similar agreement but it is clear that the Chinese have not moved back to where they came from. What is the point of the third meeting if not for the sake of just talking? Both sides know that the talks at the military level are for the sake of form. For substance, look at what Prime Minister Modi has been saying he has called out China as an aggressor and a force of evil. Mod s utterances are the words of a man betrayed. Which is why a military agreement alone will not suffice.

He states that while there is ;a general consensus in Delhi that the Galwan encounter has produced a discontinuity in India s China policy;, skeptics point out that structural constraints would limit dramatic changes in policy once the heat of the moment dissipates.Rajamohan argues that the potential direction of the Sino Indian relationship is likely to depend on how the current military confrontation in Ladakh is resolved .
The first cold war is a direct one. Mutual trust has never been a strong suit of the India China relationship but the ongoing Chinese transgressions in Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) indicate a significant breakdown of long standing bilateral agreements and can be considered a tipping point. For the foreseeable future, the LAC face offs involving violent physical altercations and possibly casualties will become the norm. And yet, these are unlikely to escalate into full fledged conflict even as both sides criticise each other more openly in bilateral and multilateral conversations.What also separates the India China cold war from its predecessor between the superpowers is the deep and growing economic linkages between the two sides. Another feature is the distinct asymmetry in the military and economic equations in China s favour. But while calls in India for selectively boycotting Chinese goods are unlikely to work, the Narendra Modi government can still prevent further Chinese ingress in the form of capital and technologies. Given its own political economy, this might be more of a concern for China, than the LAC factor itself. Asymmetry, thus, does not necessarily mean lack of leverage for India, and avenues for negotiations and compromises will exist in the relationship.
