It’s minor at the end Norman sees a fly on his hand and says, “I'm not even going to swat that fly… Why, she wouldn't even harm a fly...

There are taxidermy birds in this movie.

A woman is being watched without her knowledge in one scene.

Implied child abuse in the past, also Norman’s “mother” berates him through out the film.

Not explicitly, no, but one of the main characters has a tough and traumatic relationship with a parent.

A person gets slashed in the face but it is not very gorey.

No eye mutilation at all, there is a corpse that doesn’t have eyes but it is not graphic by any means, it really just looks like a skull with a wig.

Someone is slashed and they fall backwards down stairs. It is unclear which killed them.

It does, and a very well known one, in fact! The Icon for Is there a shower scene" on this site is ripped right from this movie.

There is the discussion of institutionalizing a mentally ill person.

There's a scene where Marion is eating and Norman compliments her on the fact that she is eating like a bird. I'm not sure if this would trigger someone?

Never shown on screen, but someone tells a story of someone who commits suicide very briefly. No flashbacks.

One could see Norman has having gender dysphoria.

It depends on if you find showers claustrophobic.

This is textbook demonization of mentally ill people in film.

At the end, when Norman stares at the camera. He then started to turn into his mother with scary eyes and a faint image of a skull.

The very name of the film is ableist (although it might not have been problematic at the time) and some of the psychology discussed at the end would probably be considered ableist today.

Not “jokes” but this is on the most infamous examples of the killer cross-dresser trope (that might warrant its own category in the future though)

No homophobia, but slight transphobia with the use of the outdated term "transvestite".

A character is incorrectly referred to as a “transvestite” for a brief moment

not hate speech per se, but old, outdated terms for mentally ill and transgender people that have negative connotations today.

The film opens with people who are in their underwear kissing. We also see someone take a shower, but we do not see any genitalia. Some side boob is the most we see.

No but a car is pushed into a lake, and at the end of the film we see the car being towed out covered in mud which could be triggering imagery for someone who is bothered by car crashes.

Very minimal. We do not see anything extremely graphic, the most graphic imagery is of a corpse but it looks very much like a skull.
