Well, perhaps she doesn't act "like a lady"....sweating and stinking bourbon
is not quite ladylike, I hypothesis.  As far as acting, or speaking with the
voice of a female vs a male, I tend to read this whole passage as from the
heart of PKD rather than a character from a book.  In my opinion, women are
not generally depicted as going through a great deal of physical pain, so
this narrative is different in that respect.  Finding "the three circles of
colors" or the experience of totality is transgender, and stinking or not,
Angel  goes through this.   To me, she speaks with the voice of a human,
rather than female or male.

Is this what you mean?
