This seems to be the stereotype of the environmental extremest these days and that's how I view a lot of them. Do you agree? I've grown to believe the vast majority of people who call themselves environmentalists are pseudo-intellectuals are actually trying to do everything they can to keep humans from playing outside. They lobby for bans on: -hunting -fishing -horseback riding -gold prospecting -ATV riding -Camping -Skiing and snowboarding (they keep ski resorts from opening or expanding) Now to be fair, there are already laws in place regarding the what you can and cannot do in regards to these activities. These laws are there to protect the environment from careless behavior. But there are seriously people trying to push these regulations even further into not even allowing these activities to happen. They seem to have a sick twisted view that nature is for animals and plants only, and the city is for people only. It makes sense in a way as they're too busy sipping their Starbucks lattes in their high-populated urban dwellings as they distance themselves far away from the natural world. They claim how much they love mother nature, yet many never venture off outdoors as many of them are too scared to get their feet dirty, or their phobia of insects and mosquitoes. I'm a conservationist and i do care about our planet. I do think that the environment should be cared for. But because of what most environmentalists have done to ignorantly wreck outdoor recreation, I do not wish to call myself an environmentalist. Environmentalists are similar to feminists; I agree that men and women should have equal opportunities in academics and the workforce without discrimination, but some feminists are so extreme they feel that society should be matriarchal and women should have more privileges.
