There is no animal death "on-screen," but there is implicitly, since there's a scene involving pigs' blood

There's no graphic sexual assault but there are discussions of it happening to other women, attempted sexual assault against the protagonist that is interrupted, and a scene that details the beginnings of a sexual assault that happens off-screen.

There are frequent mentions of families killing their daughters, including children. There's also a scene involving characters threatening to murder someone's child, and then claiming to have done so already, but they're lying.

There are male and female seats in the cockpits and while gendered seating is not the same as gendered dress, there is a man who is horrified by the idea of sitting in the female seat because of its gendered connotations.

Hate speech against women is common in this book, though it is all rather thoroughly addressed. There is also a Han-Rongdi conflict, and the Han majority in the setting of this book have a tendency to say bad things about Rongdi people. This is also addressed.

Spoiler spoiler spoiler: There is a fake out where it appears that a bi or pan person dies, but you find out in the epilogue that the situation's not as clear cut.

Guns are used as a way to threaten people, and a character ends up shot. The resulting bullet wound is continuously brought up until it fully heals.
