And if you can bear one more comment. Gimp is a noun that is virtually gone
from the American English language in this sense. There are lots of
disparaging words that the language police are trying to remove from usage,
but this one died a natural death long ago.

Much like those Southwest airline attendants who got sued for saying
eeny-meenie-miney-mo, you gotta be on the lookout for offense to be
bothered by this. It was a pretty mild term to begin with, most often used
as an adjective, and usually about oneself, e.g., "Can't play ball today,
got a gimpy leg."

Give it up folks....if you want to clean up language, there are more better
targets to hunt.
