Anarchism is a society free of sexism, homophobia, and transphobia; a society in which the wounds from centuries of enslavement, colonialism, and genocide are finally allowed to heal.

I feel as though Anarchism is more of a philosophy of opposition to oppressive forces rather than a "society".

What do you think of this instead?:

Anarchism is a philosophy addressing the modern social ills including racism (white supremacy), sexism (patriarchy), colonization, homophobia, and transphobia induced by rampant industrial capitalism; to form a society in which the wounds from centuries of enslavement, colonialism, and genocide are finally allowed to heal.

Anarchist without adjectives, but do lean a little more towards communalism. I wouldn't say say ancom though..

Anarchism is a social and political (some would say apolitical) philosophy, yes. But that doesn't retract from the fact that anarchist societies have existed.
