Not in the kind of story that SAO is, as it is neither that dark nor would it have made sense in the story, but in others? yes it can be.

Would the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have been a good story if you take all the rape/abuse stuff out of it? No, as you'd gut the entire premise of the story.

Ironically, by your standard, Lisbeth Salander would be categorized as a damsel-in-distress too, and she's about the farthest thing from one.

Now if you like it, good for you.
Objectively speaking, making sense doesn't always means it's good, but the use of any trope/cliche also doesn't always mean it's bad.

Subjectively, anything goes.
