While technically not, a dog's owner is killed and the dog left alone in the house which we never see again. It could be assumed the dog is fine afterwards and gets a new owner off screen.

There's a fly in the beginning that the camera follows for a bit in close-ups, I don't know if it counts.

One character runs out of the room while he’s watching a horror movie with his friends after making small sounds. He returns a few seconds later saying that he had to go v*. Not triggering at all unless the mention of p* triggers you.

no, but there is a magazine with a common pornographic phrase to refer to trans women sex workers. if you will pardon me getting specific, the magazine is titled "chicks with dicks". it is used as evidence that a man is capable of having unusual reading habits and still be normal, but he is shamed for owning it.

a detective is outed in a courtroom for enjoying pornography of trans women. while its straight for a straight guy to like trans women, it feels very similar to being outed for being gay.

Not exactly, but a character mentions being on a diet to lose weight for a boy. It is shown as something negative and only mentioned once if I remember correctly. I also believe the character drops the diet very quickly.
