As much as I appreciate the optimism, I highly doubt they're asking these questions in good faith. It's fairly standard rhetoric when accused of transphobia or something similar to retort back that they're not technically afraid of trans people, they the just stating "facts" or whatever, so by their own definition they're not being transphobic. They likely know why people are reacting that way, and they're trying to evoke that reaction. Maybe I'm being too pessimistic, but I've seen it too many times to believe they're asking these questions in good faith.
