Hi, I'm wondering if を in this sentence is correct or should it be が instead?
I'm not really sure if this 見られる is supposed to be an indirect passive (suffering passive) here.
「私だって、おじさまを変な目で見られるのは嫌です。」

Thanks.

Yes, that's indirect passive. I don't know the context, but it seems to me to be more likely possessor's passive, not passive of adversity (in the nuance of something like "in the same side" or "mate").

Ah, you mean the speaker feels close to おじさま (仲間 is the right word, I guess?) and wouldn't like if 見られる happened to him? Also, を must be used here then?

Yes, the word I wanted to use was exactly 仲間.👍 おじさまが変な目で見られる is an ordinary passive, so doesn't have this nuance.
