There is a neglectful parent who is also implied to be abusive to their child, they also leave amphetamines in places where their child can access them. to avoid this you can simply not do the task requested of you by Cuno- the child in question.

Pedophiles are not in the game, and pedophilia never becomes a plot point in any sense. Allusions to pedophilia are made in some of the story's prose ("child molestation" is brought up as an example of something bad) or in character interactions (a mischievous child loudly accuses the protagonist of being a pedophile as an intimidation tactic).

There's lengthy discussion of an alleged sexual assault, which probably wasn't assault since the alleged survivor is confident it was consensual and other characters admit to fabricating the assault claim. You can also encounter a dialogue option which describes war crimes, including sexual assault.

Described in detail by a minor character. The violence is also anti-female and racist in nature. The scene appears in dialogue alone & is completely optional--the game will encourage you several times to back out of the conversation & will warn you that "things are about to get graphic".

Never by otherwise likable characters though. To avoid: don't tell your tie you don't want to drink. Don't tell Evrart you're ultraliberal. If (SPOILER) your companion is shot, the option to say it also has a chance to appear in a conversation with Cuno, the chance increasing the higher your Rhetoric is; the only definite way to avoid it appearing afaik is savescumming if Kim gets shot.

Given the bleak state of Revochal, numerous characters suffer from PTSD relating to violence, sexual activity, poor upbringings, etc.
(SPOILER WARNING from this point of my comment onward) The protagonist suffers from PTSD, and spends most of the game struggling to remember the traumatic event. He becomes very distressed and launches into panic attacks or states of distress whenever something happens that reminds him of this event. His traumatic event is not related to drugs, physical violence, or sexual violence.

It's implied that the main character was going to commit suicide by hanging the night before the story begins. During the main storyline, a character threatens to shoot herself with a gun when she is confronted by the player, and if the player fails a Rhetoric check, she will die. The main character can also shoot himself in an failed Authority check in the task "Prove your authority to Titus Hardie".

The world is fairly grounded, but the protagonist's unusual perception of reality makes it seem unstable/surreal. The protagonist regularly speaks to voices in his head in a sort of fractured inner-monologue, though it's he understands that they're explicitly in his head and not in the world around him. He speaks to his necktie, who can talk and has a distinct personality. He occasionally has confusing, vivid dreams where it's initially unclear whether he's dreaming or not. He interacts with supernatural forces and you're meant to wonder whether they're real or delusions.

Yes. The main character regularly insults and is horrified by his own body. Some of it is needlessly harsh, and some of it is well-informed, as years of alcohol/drug use have done considerable damage.
There is no body dysphoria relating to gender identity presented in the game.

It is broken, but not too severely; there are some subtle nods to the player that are explained away as the protagonist's quirky way of thinking and interacting with others. For example, the protagonist is accused of speaking in "trees" by another character, acknowledging that the gameplay is a series of dialogue trees.

It's ambiguous whether it's an abortion or miscarriage.

There's a description of a baby crying at one point in a game, and you meet a character that is pregnant.

As mentioned in another comment, there is a character who either has an abortion or miscarries prior to the events of the game - it's ambiguous which it is.

The f slur is used in a censored form.

There is no explicit antisemitism, however, lines of internal dialogue if your character is a fascist occasionally use terms like "Deformed money lenders" and "foreign money lenders."

There's a character who dresses androgynously, and your character can ask him some questions about it, and why he's dressed "like a woman." He answers very casually and your character leaves it at that, curiosity sated. It's not written as a joke, but it does edge near it just from your character being a little ignorant.

Race and gender/sexuality based. Unavoidable, but it's always portrayed as a bad thing. The worst example of this is when you yell a racist slur at your companion if you fail a check. (To avoid this, don't ask him to dance.)

All of the (often fictional/stand-ins for existing races) minorities are represented well by the game. The game's narration and narrative explicitly denounce racism as you encounter (or participate in) it.

There is some intentional, in-universe misrepresentation of minorities. The game's equivalent to an Asian person is shown in a conical hat, frolicking in a field of saffron on a racist "Yellow Man Mug". Again, the game's narration explicitly says that it's a bad, racist mug.

Not out of spite for LGBT people though: it's because a lot of the key characters are actually LGBT, and one of the game's key themes is mortality.
There's one LGBT character whose death is inevitable, and three whose life/death is dependent on your decisions.

R slur is used in at least one conversation, uncensored - other ableist language is used.

Main character and his ex had a 6-year age gap, and since I had to pull out a calculator to do the math, I seriously doubt anyone would have an issue with it while playing the game

Sex is described and alluded to by multiple characters. The higher your "electrochemistry" skill is, the more likely the protagonist is to have sexual thoughts. There are no outright sex scenes.

A "femme fatale" character is sometimes referenced sexually. This is done through crude flirtation, or in the case of more unsavory characters, misogynistic rhetoric

main character is mostly naked (underwear and socks) upon waking up at the beginning of the game, and you can touch a corpses penis, but no visual depiction of genitals.

Player character ridicules himself for crying at times, and some other characters comment on it with one being an antagonistic child. There's also a moment where another character sees him crying from afar and simply comments "My god...", but this is open to interpretation as the game progresses. The latter scene is also a result of passive skill checks after failing active checks while talking to a character named Acele and easily avoided.

No, but it is asked is by two characters in certain scenarios in response to the playable character’s strange behaviour.

I have seen speculation that some difficulties the main character has could be a result of his (minor spoiler warning) having had polio as a child

Yes. There are two characters depicted who are explicitly shown to have symptoms of a neurodegenerative condition. The main character suffers from amnesia and acts unusually, but doesn't seem to have a form of dementia

An elderly woman with severe dementia is shown.

While not exactly terminal illness, the player character has severe physical symptoms resulting from long-term addiction (and possibly other factors), which can kill him even during the game and result in a game over. It is unclear to what degree he can or will recover, but he is not optimistic about his life expectancy.

Your character is effectively homeless, he doesn't remember his home address until you internalize a thought related to figuring it out, and the places of residence he stays at in the story are explicitly meant to be short term. There is also a thought called Hobocop, which can be acquired when he humors the idea of sleeping on the streets.

This depends on the decisions you make and what you consider sad. A lot of bad things happen over the course of the game, but I think the overall message is one of hope.

Evidence of a car crash and the wreckage of a car are found. The actual car crash isn't depicted but using the Visual Calculus skill shows still images of the car on the path it took just before the crash

There are references to a potential future event involving a nuclear bomb, but it is never shown. It is mentioned that in the past a nuclear reactor went critical in a populated area.

(Spoilers) During the tribunal, innocent and unarmed people can be shot by mercenaries. The main characters can also shoot back at them. If chosen, the main character can threaten gun violence to intimidate others.
