Thanks for this! I've tended to see Mary Sue condemnation as misogynist and really hadn't given much thought to the way these special characters get used to put down other female characters, including women of color. I think that's partly to do with me starting out in a fandom where OFCs were pretty much the only way to get any female characters at all, but you make great points here.
