In what realm of video games is this considered supporting?

So, I think we're all aware of mages taking complete control over the bot lane by now, but why are they getting the title "support"? Just because they don't take cs from their adc, and build a Frost Queen's doesn't not differentiate them from APC's. 90% of the time, they don't even build a sightstone, they just end up buying more AP burst items right after Frost Queens. In what nature of mind is that anywhere close to what supporting is supposed to be in this game? I literally just get one shot by the "support" late game every single fight. Yes, you can argue that it's "aiding the team by having damage", but aren't they supposed to offer peel, healing, utility, etc; not more damage? Doesn't make a bit of sense to me, I can't even remember the last time I'VE seen an Alistar/Leona/Braum/Karma/Soraka/Taric in my past 100 games. It's literally pathetic that people get auto-fill so they just play something that just one shots squishies over and over again mid-late game.
