It's probably a change to keep things in a more serious tone.

Jimmy is a comic relief character, a silly little boy more or less. Change into female will probably negate that.
Jenny will probably be Perry's assistant or something. Jimmy was just an ass kisser lol
This is incredibly telling.

The idea that Jenny Olsen "will probably be Perry White's assistant or something" is inherently sexist and kind of makes me want this to be an actual Jenny Olsen even more.

These comics go back a ways, gang. Back to a time where what Rodrigo said would've been the only logical conclusion for a female supporting character.

Jenny Olsen could and should be every bit the "anything for a shot" go-getter confidant photog we would hope the character was if it were Called Jimmy and was a man.
