Women do experience violence frequently, but only as much as their male counterparts. I wouldn't say for spectacle as it is crucial to the plot, but the violence could be described as "gratuitous". None of the violence is seen as a good thing though.

Actually, I retract my statement. An abused son commits attempted kidnapping and murder to make his abusive father proud. He does learn his lesson by the end though.

S1 Ep7: SPOILER______________a man is having sex with a woman, she says 'slow down, you're hurting me' and he says 'sorry' but doesn't slow down and speeds up instead. Meanwhile he's thinking about this woman's ex husband, the person who bullied him and it basically shows he's having 'sex' with her roughly her as revenge for the bullying. Can't remember starting timestamp but there's a flirting scene that leads up to this scene. Ends at 43.06 She also only initially agreed to sex with him because of a promise he made which he knew was a lie. We see her being angry about this lie in a scene after

During this it shows him fantasizing, it basically shows he's enjoying having 'sex' with her roughly as revenge for her husband previously bullying him. Can't remember starting timestamp but there's a flirting scene that leads up to this scene.

Hanzee Dent, an Indigenous man, asks for a hair cut from a character but ultimately does not go through with it. He asks for something “professional” and states he is “tired of this life” alluding to the racism he faces and the chaotic life he leads working for the main crime family in the season.

There is an earlier very briefly depicted flashback of him as a child at an American Indian Boarding School where his hair is shorter (this was often done as an attempt to eliminate Indigenous cultural ties). Though Hanzee’s specific group is not mentioned, hair for many Indigenous cultures has a strong spiritual and emotional significance.

A character is called psychotic, there's a scene of forced institutionalization where they are restrained with belts and moved to an hospital set up.
Also, while trying to escape the hospital, the same character uses an old lady in a wheelchair as a prop to her escape, wheeling her around without asking.
