But At Least No Kitties Were Eviscerated

What, exactly, is there about MarySues that so chars the fanly cheeseburger? It's true that I've observed one of the identifying characteristics of fandom is the ability to froth at the mouth over amazingly trivial things, but real or alleged MarySues are a disproportionate Flame Magnet. I know that many analysts have pointed to the irritating perfection of the classical MS, but I've seen the peasants run up with torches merely because an original character had an important role in the story and both she and the writer happen to have two X chromosomes.
