I dunno how to feel about this whole thing really. It feels kinda irresponsible for the caretakers of a world to just kinda say "Well were not going to detail certain kinds of content anymore we already established existed" I kind feel like its the responsibility of the world builders to detail the ugly bits of their world so there can be a shared expectation and baseline when one moves from table to table. Things like the 1e 'candy van' demon were.. unlikely to get used but also kind of were a safety net for GMs and players in that it existing and being detailed meant that GM's didn't have to stomach doing it themselves.

Turning your head from the slavery thing just means putting the work on a lot of GMs who might really screw it up and make something actually offensive rather than just use the default that is provided and carefully measured. Same with a lot of things. Having it written down is a safety net for a LOT of people GMs and players included. Not providing that is, in my opinion, irresponsible.

Things should always be more fleshed out, not less. The creator should never bow to pressure to veil or hide something just because it might make a few people uncomfortable. Art is not supposed to make people comfortable after all. Art can never truly thrive and be vibrant when created by someone afraid of what people might think when they see it.

Both PF2e and 5e have their benefits and are fine systems.

Buuut.. PF1e is still considerably better. I would say 3.5 in general is better than more modern systems but PF1 is better than it despite being an iteration.

I wish you the best of luck with 2e as I'm sure it was a massive undertaking and even moreso when you have so much content you still have yet to remake and redo to be able to move forward with the story freely. But I know a lot of people are just going to stay with 1e even if that means new content will have to come from other sources or retrofitting new AP's to the older system.

Despite being Bi, Trans, and polyamorous I can't say I've ever really cared about inclusivity or found it important in media. However it seems like it does make some people happy so I guess that's nice. I'll continue not to care so long as it doesn't affect product quality or end up barring some content for some reason.

I mean I don't know why there was ever a change from how 1e had it? Save type then half or none for appropriate spells. General rule of crit fail or success doing none or double damage. Feels like someone tried to fix a perfectly fine wheel and now were discussing if maybe we want to go from a pentagon to an octagon when the circle was working pretty well.

I emailed customer support already. But I'm having the same issue as well.
