The Wider Image: Harrison: A transgender man's journey
Harrison Massie, 25, poses for a photograph at his home in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S., January 4, 2015. "I want surgery because I've never had an attachment to the fat that has been on my chest since puberty. I will finally be able to go outside without a binder. Finally, I will be able to swim in public. Finally, I will be able to go back to the gym without feeling like people are staring at my chest," Harrison said.

New government research shows that 'breast ironing,' where the breasts of young girls are flattened using a hot stone, has seen a 50 percent decline since it was first accidentally uncovered during a 2005 survey by the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GTZ) on rape and incest in Cameroon.
