We are all aware of what “disparity of force” means and how it can affect the outcome in a self defense situation. Now we are headed to the courtroom with a jury of our brainwashed “peers”.
For arguments sake.
I’m male 5’4” and an athletic 165 pounds and my attacker is 6’3” 275 pounds! Sounds like a clear case for “disparity of force”.
However, in our ever changing world in which we live in, the attacker identifies as a woman What if the victim is female?
How will today’s jury look upon the new science! I’m a man, “she’s a woman”. Is it still considered disparity of force?
How will a jury be selected or deselected. As a juror I’ll be tossed for cause!
At the martial arts gym I go to there are some women there that are about half my size but have significantly more training. They could easily mop the floor with me if they wanted. Size and biological sex are factors to consider but a small woman can easily seriously harm a larger man by using either force of will (especially if enhanced by rage, adrenaline, chemical substances, weapons, etc.), skill or a little luck.
Since anyone can use whatever pronouns and adjectives they choose these days I would say that identifying words are completely irrelevant in a self defense situation. The media might be able to play games with their audience to paint a defender in a bad light but a good lawyer will make sure the jury sees the disparities and other factors that truly counted.
