All i know about Psychopathy is that it isnt even a medical or a diagnostic term. https://www.verywellhealth.com/sociopath-vs-psychopath-characteristics-and-differences-5193369 I had no idea about the baggage it has for the poor and abused. I guess i have been using it the wrong way all the time i thought it was just an insult or something.

Yes and no

Yes psychopath isn't a diagnosis but is a studied disorder. I say no because anti social personality disorder is a diagnosable condition which psychiatrists argue as a disorder which is quite similar disorder to psychopathy or is a disorder psychopaths fall into.

Plus there are diagnostic criteria outside of of the DSM 5 which allows clinicians to diagnose psychopathy
