Someone who considers autistic people/Asperger's people to have something 'wrong' with them because they don't think like 'normal' people do. May speak in terms of 'exorcisms', 'changelings', or 'disease', oftentimes mourns for autistics and others 'on the spectrum' as if they'd died rather than been born with a slightly different perspective on the world.
Curebie: "I want to wake up the real person inside you and bring them out from under the autism!"
Autistic person: "Um... hate to break it to you, but I *am* a real person."

"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.

Someone who tries to cure that which cannot be cured, or that doesn't need to be cured.

"Curebie" is slang term used in the Autistic community to describe people who try to cure Autism - despite the fact that it has already been made perfectly clear that Autism in all of its forms is uncurable, and that people wouldn't want to be cured, anyway. It's just society trying to make them normal, they say.
Trying to cure Autism? You curebie!
