369549 27: Female jail inmates are chained together as they bury cadavers at Maricopa County's pauper's graveyard in Phoenix, Arizona May 17, 2000. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio began the first female chain gang. With a reputation of being the nation's toughest law enforcement officer, Sheriff Arpaio said he does not believe in discrimination. As a result, the women in Arpaio's jail are treated exactly like the men. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Liaison)

Demi Minor, an incarcerated transgender woman has impregnated two fellow inmates in a New Jersey Prison. A New Jersey Department of Corrections spokesman told NJ.com, that Ms. Minor had to be moved from Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women to the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility due to the recent news.

Serving a 30 year sentence due to manslaughter, Minor is now in a vulnerable position as she is the only female inmate at her new facility. In a recent blog post on Justice4demi.org, Demi has let it be known that she’s currently on suicide watch after attempting to hang herself in the van during transport & that the guards denied her request to be search by a female DOC officer.

She also released the following statement on the Justice4demi website,

“The New Jersey Department of Corrections have violated my right to be safe and free from sexual harassment, by putting me in one of the most violent youth Correctional facilities. While living here at the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility, I have found my self under attack by young inmates who are immature and just plain ignorant towards a person like me. On Saturday I was in medication line when a inmate cut in front of me, and said “I am not standing behind no fag” “the inmate than spit directly in my direction”, I came back and washed my clothing’s knowing deep down, that I can not and will not live like this!! I don’t think DOC realizes the psychological damage that has been done from moving me out of a women’s prison to a male facility, its harsh and, I don’t know what its like to live as a man, and I refuse to ever revert back to such habits or behavior.”
