Not exactly, but one character drives an hour+ to show up unexpectedly at an ex's dorm/home. It's invasive and unwanted contact. The same character also previously called her several times from unknown numbers and stayed silent on the line. It might be upsetting to some.

A lot of the characters were/are raised pretty poorly. Lorelai was raised in an emotionally abusive and unhealthy home, Pairs has very neglectful parents, another characters parents send him off to a military school instead of actually dealing with his behavior, another character has a controlling mother, and Luke's Nephew Jess was abandoned by both of his parents, however no violent abuse is shown directly on screen or implied.

Jesse attempts to assault Rory but stops the attempt when she starts using force to back up her spoken non-consent. Very likely triggering to anyone who has repeated the word "no" and had it ignored. You're not alone.

There are 2 episodes where large fires take place but no one is seriously harmed.
There is a running joke that the chef Sookie is very clumsy and she injures herself frequently, including burns, but never seriously.

No, but in S4:E16, "The Reigning Lorelai," A grandmother/great-grandmother passes away (Lorelai the first, Richard's mother). However, no kids' parents (or MCs' parents) die in Gilmore Girls. Regarding other comments, the miniseries Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life mentions Richard Gilmore's death and shows scenes of his funeral. The actor who had played him had passed away IRL. (But doesn't that show have a separate entry?)

In season 3 Episode 14 "Swan Song" when Patty starts singing when practicing her one woman show Kirk starts flashing the lights. They continue flashing after the people have walked out so you're not safe until it cuts to the Gilmore House.
Then, in the first episode of season 7, when Kirk drives through the new red light camera to demonstrate, look away if flashing lights bother you. The camera flashes like 4 times in succession. At least it doesn't last long.

S6E19, Lane’s wedding- Her husband is wearing a traditional wedding outfit to honour Lane’s Korean heritage, it resembles a dress, there are various jokes about it. Nothing blatantly transphobic, but enforcing some shame & stigma around men embracing femininity!
