Was i just asking to be dominated?

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (6 Players) BN: $10.00
SB: $10.61 (Hero)
BB: $19.28
UTG: $10.71
MP: $25.91
CO: $11.59
Preflop ($0.15) Hero is SB with A Q
UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BB raises to $2.70, MP folds, Hero calls $1.70
Only 9 hands on villain, he's 22/22 FWIW. No 3 bet, but only 9 hands.

The question is how much respect do you give someone cold 4 betting? I thought immediately "i am asking to get dominated by calling here", but convinced myself on the basis of pot odds
Flop ($5.76) J 2 Q
Hero checks, BB bets $3.30, Hero calls $3.30
Turn ($12.36) J 2 Q 8
Hero checks, BB bets $13.27 and is all in, Hero calls $4.60 and is all in
River ($30.23) J 2 Q 8 A
Final Pot SB lost and shows two pair, Aces and Queens.
BB wins and shows three of a kind, Aces.
BB wins $20.59
Rake is $0.97

Rest of the hand writes itself. I guess the main question is how much respect do you give people 4 betting, particularly cold 4 betting at micro?

it seems too nitty/non-GTO to be folding AQ/AK to a 4 bet, but I keep running them into AA/KK and getting stacked. Do i just need to making an exploitative lay down pre flop?
