The catfish in this episode (who is a lesbian woman) claims to have tricked straight women into sleeping with her under the pretence that she is a man, which can be considered “rape by deception”. This is laughed off and no one challenges her on it. The same catfish appears again in S8E35.

A woman discusses her ex-partner committing suicide. She discusses the last conversation they had, how his death impacted her emotionally, and briefly the method of his suicide. There are other episodes where suicide is discussed too, not sure which ones.

S1E6: a trans man is repeatedly misgendered and called "a girl who identifies as a man" by Nev
S1E9: centers around a guy and his trans gf. the fact that she is transgender is treated as if she was lying, she's frequently called a "dude", and there are a lot of generally really invalidating comments made about her.
cannot speak past these episodes, havent watched much of the show yet tbh

Most of the episodes end in the couple breaking up, with the one who was lied to often dejected and upset by it. There are always "one month later" vignettes though, and those are often very uplifting
