Re: The name Glimpse discriminates against people who are unable to see

I have never in my life heard "gimp" used as a derogatory term for disabled. I have heard it used many times used to describe submissive male BSDM enthusiasts.

This isn't about disabled people. This is kink shaming. Gimps can't be talked about in polite society (which is apparently what the OSS community is now that Torvalds has been castrated by his daughter.)
