"Curebie" someone who believe that autistic people needs to be cured. It could be interpret as that they think autistic are sick, damaged or need to be improved - something that many autistic find offensive. We can also speculate that if you remove autism from the gene pool, it could lead to negative consequences (eg. will the next Einstein or the next Bill Gates even be born?) . That said, autistic people, as well as everybody else, can need help and treatment for their problem, you can allways improve yourself, but that isn't the same thing as "curing".
I'm sure you mean well, but you sounds like a curebie. Maybe society should accept people like me, instead of trying to change us.
