Stating that Aspies are unable to empathize, unable to understand other point of views, and unable to provide any emotional support to others is too rigid.
It would be wiser to say that Aspies find it challenging to empathize, challenging to understand other point of views, and challenging to provide emotional support to others.
Many of us do succeed in doing these things - and when we read your description of us as "unable" it feels like... well... it feels like a lack of empathy, ability to understand other points of view and provide any emotional support!
