OOO is neither speculative (it is intuitive) nor is it realism (it is idealism). See here.
Is idealism necessarily anti-realist? Otherwise, I agree with the assertion. In fact, OOO feels like Kantianism on steriods.

That is such a great metaphor for OOO. !Lol. Check out my analysis that spells it out while also offering a little more.
Good question, I think “anti-realism” is an ill-named position, as many anti-realists are in fact realists, but not about everything. Similarly one could conceive idealism as being a matter of giving primacy to spirit without giving it exclusivity. Where I disagree is in your metaphor, for me OOO is Kantianism on barbiturates.
