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

I expect that generally, people who are disabled, most specifically American (which isn't a generally recognized disability), hear the word used more often than most others. The dictionary indicates also that it applies primarily, but not exclusively, to impairment affecting walking, How offending it is mainly depends on how offending it was intended to be.
