Hola de nuevo:

Tengo alguna pista: ¡ sin duda alguna sé que no se trata de rápido! Tendrá que ver con "privar, ceñir, no dar espacio a"

Cotexto:

Accordingly, the fast points of this avoidance debate against matriarchal studies and the critique of patriarchy are:
Technical progress, especially technology as machine, hostile relations to nature, and (men’s) domination must remain untouched, to the effect that eco-feminists, feminist critics of domination, subsistence theorists, and, even more so, subsistence practicians, or so called “spiritual” women and matriarchal researchers, who plead for alternatives, are seen as “esoteric”, “conservative”, and have to be, more or less, located on the right.

el punto inamovible


Explanation:
No sería simplemente este otro significado de "fast"? O sea, en el sentido de seguro, como en "hold fast", que es como "hold tight". Creo (y digo ese creo con tono dubitativo, porque el texto es densito!) que tendrá sentido en el contexto.
