About revenge, I don't think so. Letting it go, neither. I think it would make sense if you could intervene in a way that situations like that would have a decent resolution. Definitely not based on seniority and to my impression that's what happened. Also, the supervisor's response seems bulshit. Having your tape is like having your name I would say, it's a mark to distinct them from others so they don't get mixed up. Why where you not part of the solution and they thought they would handle it and let you know afterwards? Just some thoughts.

Yes, undoubtedly all the best intentions in this attempt and they've been through a lot cause they've been there for some time now, several decades. Still it's not hard to guess who is taking pictures at it's entrance, has files documenting the activities of on all those who live there. So yep do your thing, keep it there and say "thanks" cause we let you be

I wouldn’t expect one person to get everything right. Getting things right is a process that needs to be done collectively. That said I think it’s important to call out the bullshit and try not to miss the interesting thoughts influenced by the bulshit. For example, let’s not forget Proudhon’s views on women and jewish people...

Thanks for the reply and the clarifications. What a relief.
The way I see things by using this definition of feminism on the sidebar it's like it says this is what feminism is for this forum. By extension it looks like these approaches are approved.
Suggestion: What if the broad definition was skipped and something more specific to this forum took it’s place? Something including intersectional feminism perhaps?

I would suggest Paula Gunn Allen. She does not have an anarchist lens so not too sure if my suggestion will cover you. Personally I just need info on successful egalitarian cultures and I have no intentions of romanticising anything I see as wrong. Through her research she debunks many misconceptions/stereotypes we may have around Native Americans' organisation, gender, sexuality and many other matters. My favorite book of hers is Pocahontas: Medicine Woman, Spy, Entrepreneur, Diplomat just couldn't find a free pdf version of it yet. This one is super informative too The Sacred Hoop: Recovering the Feminine in American Indian Traditions
