For non-disabled people, a clothed body is a fiction that they present to the rest.
The naked body, without frills or makeup, is something to be ashamed of.

Paradoxically, perhaps we are happier with our seriously flawed bodies than those with only minor flaws.
But if someone is unhappy with their body image, should we offer them a cosmetic operation, or should we help them deal with their anxieties?
