I wouldn't really say stalked, but Forrest is always trying to find Jenny. Not in a bad way though.

Sort of? Jenny's past abuse left her an emotionally damaged and closed-off person. She cannot fully commit to her relationship with Forrest.

A neurotypical, abled actor plays Forrest, the main character who used to be disabled and who has a cognitive disability. The child actor who plays young Forrest, wears leg braces.
A side character becomes an amputee later on in the movie but is also played by an abled actor.

The gag mentioned is NOT graphic and it’s more like a gasp. He seems to be more uncomfortable than anything. Instead of gagging, he says, “oh, oh, oh!” But if you don’t like that, just fast forward through the scene when Jenny sits on the bed with Forrest in her white underwear. They’re at her college when this happens.
