That's silly. In highschool, you do it all the time. In fact, it's
rather natural. That's how you learn to deal with conflicts and
troubles in real world when teens grow up. With politicians, you do it
all the time.

In some theoretical sense, sure, you don't have the “right” to return
insults, and you can be some saint. In real world, it doesn't work
like that. Nobody's gonna fight for you for some justice. Even the
most perfect justice system that exists in practice in this world, it
doesn't activetly go do justice for you or each individual. It only
provide support when you defend yourself.
