Because they’re One Direction.
Shitting on girls for making Mary Sue oc’s is very important. Can’t have girls wanting to see women represented as powerful and successful and smart and attractive all at once. Might go to their heads. They might start thinking that it’s actually cool to be a woman. Can’t have that.
The fact that Mary Sue characters were given a title a long time before their male counterparts is a problem.
The fact that people still debate whether Gary Stus are even a thing is a problem.
Shitty characterization is still shitty characterization.
There are plenty of strong, well-rounded, believable female characters out there written by women, and there are plenty of shit mary sues out there written women as well.
You can be a powerful, successful female role model character without being a mary sue. Stop using actual real world problems to cover up for your shit writing habits.
