Am I a transphobe?

I came out in 2017, and since that time, I’ve encountered this question in many different ways from cis people. Sometimes, it’s asked in good faith from cis people who are just trying to do better. “Am I transphobic? Please teach me.”

Other times, it’s combative. “Really? You think I’m transphobic? I’m not afraid of trans people!”
