Few points to pick up on here:

This is one of the key reasons people who play with rogues don't like them: you're not part of the team. You're being a single-player in a multi-player experience. Yes, your role is important (in games where stealth classes exist) but many rogue-like players will stealth in and force a pull rather than waiting for the tank to pull and then killing the healer. This isn't so much a complaint about the class idea itself as the players who choose them. If you're going to kill the healer then that's fine, but let the poor tank pull before you do please.

This is one of the key reasons people who play against rogues don't like them: you are designed to GCD people (kill within 1-2 global cooldowns, or fast enough that their partners have no time to react). As you said, healers aren't meant to stand a chance against rogue-like classes. To some: this is fine; to others: this is a massive design flaw. To all: it's an excuse to be an <insert offensive words here> individual. That is what the class is designed for.
As to healers not standing a chance in 1v1... in pvp, a healer should always win. If a healer cannot win against a single dps, regardless of class, then there's no reason to include them in any 2v2 or larger team; they can't cope with the damage output.

A third point to keep in mind, with regard to PvP, is that stealth classes are able to pick and choose their fights with the greatest degree of freedom available; again, this is by design, but many people hate the existence of the design itself.

I put up with rogues, but I'd prefer them to not exist.

rouge is good in red, also it's called "Rogue" if your reffering to an assassin-type guy.
