RE: "Captain Marvel punches toxic masculinity in the mouth" extended scene

As a culture, we used to believe that "two wrongs don't make a right." I guess if you still hold to that perspective when observing this movie's protagonist and call it out for making her into a jerk (or even villainous *gasp*), then you're a misogynist.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed watching Captain Marvel sucker the creepy guy. I enjoy watching John Wick brutally murder hundreds of people. In the context of the story, I find myself enjoying it. Ms. Marvel is a brute with no regard for the safety and property of others. Mr. Wick is a psychotic murderer. Stories are stories. Hold these up as examples of something good? Um...
