Oh, Cool user name...

I disagree with the assessment, but some of the reasons Ive seen people say that is because primitivists are opposed to the technological and industrial systems that some people rely on -- they thus get called ableist since people with certain needs think primitivists are fine with them dying sue to lack of the tech they depend on. And then Ive seen some trans people accuse them of being anti trans because they depend on medical and pharmaceuticals that they think primitivists would get rid of.

Again I disagree with that but people ive argued with thats what they said.

Yeah, sounds like those people just assume anprims are collectivists because ancoms are. Anprims don't expect any kind of anti-tech revolution. They believe the planet is dying because of industry, but they don't have any plans to destroy industrialism. They're realists. They know they have no way to change things. They just live in the woods (or dream of doing so) and wait for industrialism to inevitably destroy civilization (and the planet).
