    It would also depend on which group of trans population you did your studies on.

    Again, as I mentioned before, tranny dykes don't exist in Asian settings. The cultural norms just won't allow them to exist. Either they pretend to like men, or they are not allowed to transition at all, by well-meaning parents and relatives.

    (AFAIK, I found that the South Koreans require parental consent before transition - even for adults. After all, unmarried adults are still minors in their Confucian legal system.)

    I've known a lot of Asian transwomen. Other than myself, only one even admitted to liking women.

    The more individualistic Western culture is what allows one to transition to womanhood AND still proudly love other women.
