Why does it feel like supports are not respected?

I feel like I make a lot of good plays -- save my team, nearly carry the game as the support, but never get honored. I've been told support is "easy" by other players, and get called an E-girl when I play Janna, Lulu, or Nami. So what's the deal? Is there some kind of special handicap supports get that makes their plays invalid/void of skill?
