Eq. (4.4.11g) is for a Majorana spinor SUSY charges $Q_a$, $a=1,2,3,4$, while eq. (3.1.31) is for left Weyl spinor SUSY charges $Q_{\alpha}$, $\alpha=1,2$.

Charged particles can't have Majorana masses of any type because they would violate the charge conservation law. The Majorana mass is really a term that is converting a particle into its antiparticle. It implies that the particle must be considered "physically indistinguishable" from its antiparticle. The Majorana mass term violates the lepton number or its ...
