A few reasons why queer allies hesitate to support you publicly!

Queer allies are generally people who come forward to support people from the queer community in every possible way and also stand against all the odds to face queerphobic societal norms. These allies are pretty much important for any queer person to bring normality to society and mostly all these queer allies are heterosexuals. They can be your friends, relatives, cousins and well-wishers. Amidst these judgmental scenarios in society, supporting patterns are also getting compromised because of the narrow mindsets of people around. Hence, the queer allies who truly want to support queer people publicly, hesitate a bit to show their love and support and the reasons are ridiculous to even consider but you being a queer person, need to know and fight against such complexities to make sure your queer allies happily support you without any hesitation.

It's extremely distressing to feel one's sexual orientation becoming doubtful and being at stake when one supports queer people. This is a common phenomenon where some prudish people doubt a heterosexual person's gender identity and sexual orientation if he/she supports any queer person. In addition to that, these people even target and tag them as queer people by spreading unnecessary rumours about the orientations of true queer allies. Imagine, if you are a queer person and someone tags you as straight, how do you feel? You surely get offended, right? So it is quite understandable for any queer ally to hesitate to extend their support to any queer person publicly.
