Negative. Sansa starts out a gimp. But her circumstances force her to learn rapidly and she does that admirably well. I think her situation is more perilous in some ways than Arya's and I love the way she learns to lie through her teeth and never lets her guard down. Arya appears to be much more of a fighter/survivor but Sansa is no less- just in a different way and one which I have greater sympathy for.
If you really want someone gimpy,it is Ned Stark and the Stark boys-Robb Stark being the biggest gimp of all.
"Who ain't a slave? Tell me that. Well, then, however the old sea-captains may order me about—however they may thump and punch me about, I have the satisfaction of knowing that it is all right; that everybody else is one way or other served in much the same way— either in a physical or metaphysical point of view, that is; and so the universal thump is passed round, and all hands should rub each other's shoulder-blades, and be content." - Herman Melville, Moby Dick
