Dozens of neurotypicals think that autism is just a disease that is contagious like the influenza virus but it is just a difference.
A film I have appreciated which is X-Men The Last Stand (2006) had a similar storyline where the humans have prepared a cure for mutation and the mutants such as the X-Men that live with it.
Curing autism is actually the idea of wiping out people with autism. I think of curing autism as a neurological genocide that people should understand with the right amount of research.
Autism should not be cured because I have many successes in life as with many people on the spectrum.
