It seems to me that many of the pro-Mary Sue posts are completely misinterpreting the concept of a "Mary Sue."

Yes, the term has been warped out of recognition. That's the problem.

And the fact that Mary Sue is a girl's name makes it even easier to misuse the concept. Our language is very fond of perjoratives that relate to the female sex, and can only describe men by way of a modifier. Mary Sue is one of those.
