Hierarchical and exclusive forms of social organization are usually understood by anarchists to be forms of domination. These forms of social domination have been at least as significant in anarchism as the focus on the state and governance; for some scholars and activists, more so.

Radical and critical scholarship has also been highly resistant to the study of nonhuman animals, shaped by the belief that studying animals lessens or undermines the notion of oppression. This essay challenges anarchism to think about species seriously as a form of social domination, and reflect on the humanocentrism and human exclusivity that characterizes much of both historical and contemporary scholarship.
