Not really, but the queer, cis antagonist's clit is referred to as a "micro penis" which feels a bit transphobic.

One adult character carries out the orders of the main antagonist because he feels he has no other choice.

Antagonist is portrayed as queer and eventually dies.

One child, who is frequently called the f-slur but whose sexual orientation is not known, also dies.
