I think people are confusing "lets butcher this character by removing their story" to "lets give them a new skin for people to play with." I mean if you're going to complain about their skins effing with their stories, tell me how santa claus zilean, hulk mundo, or white mage veigar don't eff with the characters. Granted gender bouncing is a bit different, but veigar going from black to white mage is a pretty contrasting change.
