Pinochet's social policy[edit]

Does anyone know what was the social policy of Pinochet? What were his views on issues like homosexuality, pornography etc. All the references I can find are on his economic policy only. Hoogut 04:40, 2 March 2009 (EST)

I would assume pretty authoritarian...I doubt a guy famous for "disappearing" people was anything but hostile to homosexuality. But I could be wrong. It might not have been a factor at all. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 07:30, 2 March 2009 (EST)

"He" had relativity low power, the Junta had the powers, and the Junta was dependant on the civil powers, which came from the most conservative right. (I'm working on references to add this to the article). This meant that women's rights were largely cut down, sodomy was banned and homosexuals prosecuted in a lesser extent. — Unsigned, by: 186.105.225.6 / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 07:17, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
He was a homophobe, but there's no evidence that he was a racist. But he was a borderline Holocaust denier, saying that he "didn't know" if it happened. — Unsigned, by: 2601:442:4680:3331:901D:A418:4F69:544A / talk
