For a good example of theory getting in the way of praxis, see that reddit thread we talked about earlier where an ancom was calling reparations made to indigenous people a 'liberal' concept incompatible with 'anarchism' (communism).

They were unable to see past their utopian ideology's rules to realize what they were saying had no relevance in the real world where indigenous people starve while settlers lounge on their 10 thousand acre ranches.

They were insinuating the only anarchism they consider valuable is a post-revolutionary one; a fictional one.

I just noticed how on topic all this is with OP:

i've read anarcho-feminist texts that spend pages saying what xenosagaepisodeone managed in one sentence

This is anarchist theory at its best. It's such a simple and logical concept that it doesn't need tomes of text to explain it and you don't need to be a scholar to make sense of it.

Anarchist theory: reject authority

Anarchist praxis: reject authority
