Depends on how you read certain characters as none are explicitly said to be autistic, but if this is a trigger for you the show might meet the criteria.

A character lies to his mother about his life of crime, despite all evidence. Especially intense in Under The Knife (S1E20). Potentially Beware The Green-Eyed Monster (S3E11) & Light The Wick (S3E18) also qualify.

Not technically, it aired on Fox so there's nothing explicit but it can definitely get very PG-13 sexy. The early seasons especially have fetish gear onscreen from time to time, but no sex scenes shown.

No one is sexually assaulted. Sex trafficking victims are shown in By Fire (S2E6), but they are eventually freed.

No, but a recurring character has feelings for his sister that she does not return. They do not have a romantic relationship, but it could still be triggering. Discussed mostly in Look Into My Eyes (S3E3), New Day Rising (S3E4), & Follow The White Rabbit (S3E6). There are also some iffy comments between a brother and sister in the first half of season 2, though it's unclear if they're actually related or have just known each other since childhood. Additional iffy moment in Prisoners (S2E16), incest is framed as disgusting in it.

Not really ableist language, but Arkham is a recurring part of the show and you have to watch DC writers tell you what they think mentally ill people are like. So that's its own warning. Edit: Also some of them are monsters because of evil science.
