Thoughts on the all female Ghostbusters reboot

Over the past few months, there has been one topic that comes up from time to time that I've had more than a few debates on and that's the possibility of an all female Ghostbusters reboot. It's a subject that has divided fans of the first 2 films as well as movie fans in general. I'm sure you've seen or heard about it somewhere, but I just wanted to share my thoughts.

First I want to say that I'm not against the idea of rebooting the series and doing a gender swap on the characters. Hell over the course of time there were female Ghostbusters on "The Real Ghostbusters" and "Extreme Ghostbusters", so this is nothing new. Doing this isn't going to somehow ruin my enjoyment of the original film or its sequel.
