In a video that's been making the rounds online the past several days, a trans woman lays the smack down -- both literally and figuratively -- on a surly drunk man who harasses her on a public bus.

Watch (warning: NSFW language):

Is bashing back warranted in this (or any) case? Or should the situation have been de-escalated in other ways? What do you think?
