A transgender inmate who got two fellow prisoners pregnant has claimed that she tried to “cut off” her own testicles with a razor after she says she was “misgendered” by being moved to a men's facility.
Demi Minor, 27, from New Jersey, US, was originally locked up for stabbing her former foster dead to death at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women in Union Township.
But she was later moved to the all-male Garden State Youth Correctional Facility after the pregnancies were discovered.

And now she has revealed her own attempt at dramatic surgery in a blog.
She titled it “Last Week I Was Sent to the Emergency Room”.
She wrote: “I started cutting again, and with a razor I begin making a incision to remove my testicle.
“In my head, I just wanted the pain to stop.
“I just wanted out of this – I have often not told anyone how I truly feel, and how sometimes, I would rather not be here.
“When I began to bleed, I did not even think about dying.
“I just thought about finally having relief from the pain that I felt.
“Being here in a male prison, amplifies the harm that I once felt, from being called c**k sucker to being called f***ot to being touched – I hate it all.

“Men come writing me letters asking for sexual things – I f***ing hate it.”
She claimed that she had been told by those in charge of placing her into a different prison that she had to “prove” she was transgender.
Demi adds that she was told “there are some things that we can biologically not change.”
She also claims to have medical records showing that she has been on “hormones” for years, and is awaiting gender “affirming” surgery, which has been delayed.
No update was given on her medical condition following the shocking incident.
