Why does everyone get offended when somebody tries to cure autism?

A russian doctor debated a potential cure for autism but had to back down after a social media outrage that caused him to get fired. Why is this?

    Because you cannot cure autism and those that try are absolutely deluded.

    Autism is a spectrum.  There are no cure-alls.  Anyone claiming otherwise is promoting pseudoscience and quackery.

    Becasue the human race decided to go down the road of political correctness and feeling being more important than facts. It is a huge backwards movement and is leading us to division.

    Richard, it is already possible to cure autism but on the one hand, you can get a lot of money with medication, support and so on. Jobs are given - that's maybe a reason that people prefer autistic people to suffer ...pain and in a mental prison. 

    Really funny to see that the earth became a whole mental asylum.

    Considering no one knows what causes autism which is currently an overdiagnosed fad how could anyone even try to cure it?

    People need to protect their turf, their interests, their wallets.  There are other examples.  

    When cochlear implants were invented, the hearing impaired community protested that children should have the right to decide whether to remain deaf or not.  They need deaf children.  

    The polio industry has long held up Franklin Delano Roosevelt as an example of someone who overcame the disease.  When modern day experts said that he probably had Guillain–Barré syndrome and that his doctors did not recognize it, the polio industry cried bloody murder.  They need Roosevelt to have had polio, not GBS.
