Group demands trans inmates be removed from women’s prison: ‘Many of them are sex offenders’

It seems insane to many that this needs to be said, but putting convicted biological men in an all-female prison because they identify as transgender is a really, really bad idea.

But New Jersey’s only correctional facility for women is doing just that, and on Friday, protestors converged at the state Capitol in Trenton to demand the 10 men who are currently housed at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility be removed.

One of the incarcerated transgender offenders impregnated two women last year.

Letters from four women who are forced to serve their time with trans prisoners were read aloud by #GetMenOut activists.

“I was repeatedly raped as a child until I was in my teens,” wrote Dawn Jackson, 51, according to the New York Post.

If Jackson’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she appeared on Kim Kardashian’s “The Justice Project” last year. She is behind bars for stabbing her abusive adoptive stepfather in 1999.

“Being subjected to live amongst (trans women) who remain equipped with their manhood is extremely overwhelming and difficult for me,” Jackson continued. “Am I living amongst any rapists? (Trans women) do not belong in closed/confined in prison settings meant to house women/females born feminine.”

The letters, which described the very real fear felt by the female inmates, were read by Jennifer Thomas and Brittany Ortiz of Justice Speaks: Free Speech for Women.

The duo cited Article 14 of the Geneva Convention and told The Post that forcing female prisoners to be housed with men is a human rights violation.

In another letter, inmate Kokila Hiatt said the transgender inmates live “as men” once they are locked up.

“Many of them are sex offenders,” she wrote. “When the males arrive they cease hormone injections and continue living their lives as men.”

“In other words, they drop the act and start doing what it is they came here for,” Hiatt continued. “They engage in sexual relationships with women, manipulate them into purchasing their commissary and have no qualms about bullying anyone who disagrees with them.”

“I personally have been threatened with violence and multiple false allegations for speaking up,” she stated.

To truly understand the scope of the situation, one must look into the crimes committed by the trans convicts.

In 2002, Perry Cerf, in what is described as a “vampiric” act, raped and murdered an Ecuadorian prostitute.

He was sentenced to 50 years and sent to a male prison, where he assaulted other inmates and was placed in solitary confinement.

In a 2002 jailhouse interview with the Daily News, Cerf described his crime.

“The truth about my case? Yeah, I killed her,” he stated. “I punched and kicked her to death, crushing her skull in the process.”

“Since I have a most unusual taste for blood,” he continued, “I drank and licked and lapped up my fill … Let it be known: I am Lucifer’s maiden servant, sent to earth born of sin, to bring suffering and pain, darkness and evil.”

But one day, Cerf, 39, decided he wanted to be known as Michelle Hel-Loki Angelina and was sent to Edna Mahan to serve “her” time.

Then there’s Demetrius Mino, who, at 16 in 2011, stabbed his foster father, who was considered “an angel,” 27 times.

As Demi Minor in Edna Mahan, the murderer impregnated two inmates before being sent to a male juvenile lockup.

“Women are the largest growing population in American prisons. Most are women of color, 86% are victims of sexual violence, and few are violent offenders,” Thomas told The Post. “It is painfully obvious that caging this exceptionally vulnerable group of women with men is an abhorrent human rights violation.”

“The solution to male violence in male prisons is not male violence in women’s prisons,” Thomas stated. “This needs to stop. Get men out!”
