If what triggers you is the victim crying/screaming/fighting back, the first sex scene is thankfully devoid of that. It's not violent as much as it is circumstantial (adult man drives hitchhiker Dawn to a deserted area with a mattress) and statutory (Dawn is in high school). This movie is very campy so based on the acting it's inconclusive whether or not Dawn is in distress, and she actually does say yes during Earl's dirty talking, encouraging him to keep going. In the next scene, Dawn calls the man on the phone and says "you made love to me on Christmas morning," which implies she doesn't think of it as rape, statutory or otherwise.

Much later, Earl attempts to assault a teenage girl (whom he has just learned is his daughter with Dawn), and while her protests can be distressing, she stabs him to death before any clothing gets removed or penetration happens.

There are cops and they capture Dawn. This movie is generally neutral on them, since Dawn is not in the right and they just put a stop to her crimes, but it puts little emphasis on how good they are for doing so.

Not directly, but when Dawn has her bandages removed from her facial scarring there is a brief moment where she hesitates to call herself beautiful the way everyone else does. It implies that she doesn't actually see herself as beautiful and could potentially be dysmorphic. This never manifests outside of this scene though and for the rest of the movie she claims herself to be the most beautiful person alive.

Aunt Ida, who is either a lesbian or a staunch supporter of homosexuality (to the point of being pretty heterophobic), tells her straight nephew "I'd be so happy if you was a [f-slur]!" and attempts to set him up with men. This is an extremely gay movie written by an extremely gay man with a lot of extremely gay actors so only the most defensive of young queer people might take offense.

There is a bit of a running joke where a women is casually heterophobic. She really wishes her nephew was gay and offers to house a young girl if she promises to be a lesbian. She says a lot of f-slurs as just a casual way to refer to people she likes and believes are superior to heterosexual people. There is no real-world hate speech.

The protagonist receives the death penalty, but she views this as a sort of lifetime achievement award for criminals, so she's pretty stoked about her execution.
