A lot of the characters on the show frequently gaslight each other. The most significant example is probably Terri’s behaviour.

Coach Beiste's husband beats her in Season 3 and some of the girls make jokes about it before they realise that it really did happen. She leaves him but then goes back to him.

(spoilers) Quinn Fabray gives her daughter, Beth, up for adoption to Shelby Corcoran. Later, Quinn regrets it and plants items such as hot sauce labeled with Beth’s name and child sacrifice books around Shelby’s house. She then calls CPS to try to get Beth back, but Noah Puckerman, the baby’s father, takes all of the stuff she planted out of the house. Otherwise, no child abuse actually happens.

There are many references to Finn's dad having some sort of an addiction. Santana makes a joke in season 2 that Will is addicted to vests.

In Season 2 one character imagines another character choking on a gumball and almost dying. There are also multiple scenes throughout the show of characters coughing from being sick.

There's a shot of Finn singing in the shower in Season 1 and Mr Schuester is watching. You only see his face, ankles, and a bit of chest.

Marley suffers from bulimia in Season 4, set off by having an obese parent and another girl secretly taking in her costumes so she thought she was gaining weight. She throws up on-screen, carries laxatives in her purse, and finally passes out while performing in Thanksgiving.

Someone attempts suicide in Season 3 episode On My Way. It is fairly explicit in showing the character hang themselves. The character survives the attempt.

Most scenes are shot with handheld video cameras and are thus very shaky. The cameras also frequently spin and pan very quickly to different characters.

In season 1 Quinn gives birth during Jesse's performance of Bohemian Rhapsody. It cuts back and forth between those two scenes. There is a lot of screaming, however nothing graphic is shown.

Bullying to Artie because he is in a wheelchair, and some to Becky because of her down syndrome, but with her Cheerios status it doesn’t happen much.

Not sure where to comment this, but the entire show has a lot of racism against Asians played for laughs. A LOT.

Two Jewish characters are bullied, though not because they are Jewish. There is no mention of their heritages, or of Judaism. There is also a plotline around a Jewish teenage girl wanting to get plastic surgery to make her nose smaller, but doesn't go through with it.

Huge plot point of S2 is Kurt’s bullying from Karofsky. Slurs are used a lot, even outside the context of Kurt being bullied.

In either season 2 or 3, Puck comes in dressed in a wig and dress which is played for laughs.

Countless people on countless occasions are insulted based on/in relation to their appearances, ethnicities, sexualities, religions, mental health, emotional states, voices, social statuses, economic statuses, intelligence, physical disabilities, and much more. Sue Sylvester (a major character) in particular is a horrible person (relentlessly harassing marginalized and mentally ill people in ways tailored to their personal insecurities and traumas, admitting to killing homeless people for fun, on countless occasions verbally using past bullying she received for having a sister with down syndrome as an excuse for everything she does, etc.), yet frequently has mini redemption arcs where people temporarily believe she's a good person.

Kurt, a gay male, is called "Lady" in Season 1 and Unique, a trans woman, is called a number of transphobic words throughout Seasons 4 and 5, and she is harassed in the bathroom by males with her wig snatched. They say "we're all guys here".

Some characters repeatedly make fat jokes about other characters. An example is Santana making fat jokes about Finn.

Many times characters make out and the scenes fade to black after the characters agree to have sex. There are many scenes of characters together in bed after having sex. On multiple occasions characters become close to completion (or actually reach completion, on one occasion) from fully clothed sexual activities. Almost every character talks about desiring sex at some point in the show.

1. A boy is cornered by his bully and forcefully kissed, against his will. Later, the bully threatens to kill him if he tells someone. The bully keeps following him until the boy eventually changes schools. 2. A girl says someone snuck into her tent during a camp and rape/assault is implied. 3. A boy admits he was molested by his babysitter when he was young and people make fun of him for it. A classmate later confides in him that she was molested too. The last two situations are never referenced again, the first is a big plot point in that season and is referenced in later seasons.

Bittersweet. One of the main characters dies halfway through the show, and knowing they could've been in the finale is a real gut punch.

In the Season 4 episode Shooting Star, a school shooting situation occurs. It ends up being a false alarm and no one is harmed, but the characters in lock down believe it is real.
