Learn some more roles, expand your roaster, and pretty sure you can win much easier, even if your mechanics didn't improve at all.
Early game is carried by Jungler and Support.
Mid game is carried by Mid and Top
Late game is carried by AD Carry and Initiator (Whoever that is..)
The "Mid or afk" strat won't work for you. You'll end up raging your team and your rating will drop.
Learn to be a strong Jungler and a Strong support. If you think Support doesn't impact the game or have the ability to carry then you obviously have to learn to play a better support. Many players have carried themselves out of low Elo by playing support.
Furthermore, don't queue with people unless you know that their true rating and your true rating are close.
If you insist on maining mid, you should learn to roam to other lanes and gank, and you should learn how to assist your jungler in counter-jungling and protecting his jungle from invasions.
Learn how to counter-pick. If you're First, Second, or Third pick you should probably be playing Jungle, Support, or ADC. Top and Mid should be picked last.
Communicate with your team during champion selection but don't make demands. I often do this:
Jungle > ADC > Top > Support > Mid.
This informs my team where my strengths and weaknesses are and lets them know that I am capable of playing anything but I am stronger in some positions than others.
First Pick has first pick for a reason: They have higher Elo than you. Don't argue with them over position/role. If you are last pick, you pick whatever is left over. This is why it's so important that you be strong in every role.
What time to queue? ... I would say if you want to avoid immature kids you should queue at times that they are in bed or at school. Weekdays from Midnight to 3:30pm.
I wouldn't worry about queuing up right after stats get reset. You are just as likely to be carried by a high-elo player as you are to get smashed by a high elo player.
And finally, nobody gives a **** that you're a female player. You're just another bunch of pixels on my computer screen and that's exactly how anybody who is playing you should see you.
