Regina falsely claims to Aaron that Cady is stalking him in an attempt to make him not like her, but she’s not actually stalking him.

A girl slaps a guy after making out with him to make it seem like they weren't just making out when someone walks in on them.

Cady gradually becomes like Regina, and eventually even takes over her role in the 'Plastics' dynamic.
She does have a revelation of sorts, and gives up that position by the end of the movie.

there is no on-screen child abuse, however there is an ongoing subplot about one of the couches having sex with underage students. additionally reginas younger sister is showing on screen being sexually explicit, this is played for laughs in a way that can be considered disturbing to some viewers.

The movie revolves around high school students. Most of it is teenagers sexualizing other teenagers.

Though there is a coach who is found out/caught having intimate relations with at least one student.

Potentially. There is a minor character, Jessica Lopez, who uses a wheelchair but from googling it looks like the actor may not actually be a wheelchair user.

At her party, Cady(Lindsey Lohan) is upstairs with Aaron. It's obvious when it's about to happen because she starts to look dizzy. She says, "Here is comes, word vomit. Wait no, real vomit!" Plug your ears because there is audio. Aaron walks out of the house and flicks the vomit off of his clothes. You hear it splatter on the ground, which is very gross, so try to just skip the second party scene if you want. It's not the Halloween party. Hope this helps! :)

A flamboyant character's sexuality is discussed without his permission. Though he does not seem to be closeted, it is unclear if his sexuality is known to the group, so jokes about his sexuality may be outing him.
