Re: Eh?

I too suffer a disability.

It's often mocked, both in everyday conversation as well as in the media at large.

And you know what? I'm still here - and what's more it gives me some great jokes to share...

That said, my beef (no apologies to vegans) with those shouting out the 'p' word is that they really do make my life difficult: The effect is that people are nervous/not candid with me in day-to-day life for fear of causing offence. Plus don't get me started when it comes to job interviews...

Frankly anyone who has a problem with the word gimp needs to grow up, get a life and a dictionary (not necessarily in that order).
