Queer Factoid

This one from The End of Gender by Shari L. Thurer:

"...One third of male-to-female transgenders, including post-operative trassexuals, go on loving women--hardly the most parsimonious route to get a woman if we presume that most women prefer to have sex with people with penises. Obviously, these particular transgenders' wish was not to be conventional women, but to be lesbians."

So it occurs to me to wonder, which way do more people choose to transition? From male-to-female or female-to-male? I would expect more male-to-female, revealing my own internal bias. I would not give up being a woman. No deal.
