Why can't I add this topic to the parents guide?

I recently signed up on IMDb in order to post a review and add to the parents guide on the 2018 TV-series Das Boot;https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5830254/parentalguide?ref_=tt_stry_pg

However, while I could add entries for other topics, such as violent death scenes, drug use, sex scenes and nudity, all my attempts to post content warnings regarding rape were declined for not meeting contribution guidelines, despite that I tried using different wording each time and avoided any graphic descriptions and tried adding the entries to both the Frightening/intense and the sex/nudity categories in the parents guide.

I don't understand, because the series does have scenes depicting rape in the third and seventh episode in addition to attempted rape in the last episode, and I have seen other movies and series on IMDb feature content warnings for such things, so why can I post CW on all other topics in the parents guide, but not rape/sexual assault? I think this topic strongly warrants an entry in the parents guide just as much as any of the other topics, so why can't I add it to the list?

I just wanted to say, I tried edited a typo in one of my submissions a few days ago, but it's still labeled as "pending", when will it get looked at?
