    I just had a look at the store I normally buy stuff from for USB adapters

    1. type C male -> type A female 21 different models from various companies
    yet the reverse
    2. type C female -> type A male, not a single one!

    Sure I can see #1 usage case being more popular, but why the complete lack of having the reverse?

    It's uncommon but you can still find it on some websites.

    Does this qualify?

    The top review there had a lengthy post taking issue with it. Here's a small snip.
