Her choice of a male pseudonym for her sf is completely explainable externally. I've never heard any claims of any unusual gender/sex/pcpolysyllabicneologism in her life or personality.

The broadest commonality I see is around the problems of expressing all of oneself in a society with high-pressure restrictive formulas. This is more detailed and nuanced discussion of what I lumped as externalities.
