Two inmates who become pregnant at a women’s prison in central Jersey are erasing the ‘trope’ that ‘transgender women are women’, a women’s rights activist said on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ on Tuesday.

Kara Dansky of the Women’s Human Rights Campaign was reacting to news from the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton, New Jersey, where inmate Demitrius Minor, now known as Demi, allegedly impregnated the two women.

Minor – then 16 – pleaded guilty in 2011 to manslaughter in the death of his adoptive father, Theotis Butts, according to the Gloucester County Times. He was later sentenced to 30 years in prison, including a concurrent sentence for an unrelated carjacking.

One of the future mothers would be Latonia Bellamy, convicted of a double murder in 2010 in Jersey City, according to the Daily Mail.

Edna Mahan is currently housing 27 transgender inmates following a lawsuit involving the American Civil Liberties Union.

Dansky said the men “do not need … to be housed in women’s prisons” and that the state of New Jersey would characterize conditions at Edna Mahan as “housing transgender women in women’s prisons – suggesting that there is a kind of subcategory of women that is called transgender women or transwomen.”

“And that’s not true. The facts of this story throw a hole through the trope that trans women are women.”

Dansky said no matter what public officials claim, there are biological realities that are exemplified in the Edna Mahan cases.

“The entire medical establishment in the United States has been captured by the so-called trans ideology. And what I really want all Americans across the political spectrum to understand is that ‘trans-‘n It’s not a civil rights movement to protect a marginalized community of people,” Dansky continued.

“It’s a multi-trillion dollar industry pushing this. It’s paying the medical establishment [and] most media [and] our government [and] our schools… to push the idea that the material reality of sex does not exist.”
