Evil is simply the utilitarian use of other life for your own gain. Its an arbitrary distinction in absolute reality, however bares significance when viewed by the neurotypical herd. Its the label they strike up to keep fear alive and the herd identity strong. Thats just my opinion though. Lol!

And when other people get an inkling of that, they may call you (or anyone else they get an inkling of that about) "evil". Yes, the fear or anxiety about someone who has "used" you, or is inclined to, with no concern about you as a person, is a factor, I think, in making that distinction.

If you are born without the ability to empathize, it's not even a choice or in your control , so how could it be 'wrong' BUT you are a possible threat. I think that's probably what the real issue is for those who don't accept you.

What about Artificial Intelligent advanced enough to think and perceive on it's own? Is the AI then, evil because it is lacking in emotion?
To be truly evil you have to have a certain kind of selfishness like preying upon others for straight up sadistic pleasure and/or personal gain at your victim's exspense. Evil is more about a sort of mad hate and seeking out someone to exact it upon for personal satisfaction.
I have an alternate personality who likes this sort of thing.
Psycology classifies him as a Persecutor type personality but, he is much more than that too. That's my opinion anyway based on my own perceptions of course. As many here have already pointed out, people love to throw that word "evil" around when someone thinks or feels as angelic as they percieve themselves to be. My advice is to just quit worrying about it.
It's obviously bringing you down and you don't need that ****.
Focus more on feeding yourself with what you need to move forward and forget about this for a while.
You can always ponder a bit on it later when you're bored and wish to analyze that information but, right now it is just in your way.
Anyone who wants to come at you like that because of a simple birth defect does not have your best interest at heart.

Evil is very subjective. There are things I find evil that others would not, and I am sure there are things others find evil that I would not. It's really just a word at the end of the day, one we use to describe someone or something. I don't think you are evil at all. Some people have difficulty sharing their feelings and emotions, and just because someone may not seem like they care doesn't mean they don't. Are those people evil? Definitely not in my book.
