A pensioner has begun a legal battle to be recognised as being 20 years younger than his actual age so he can go back to work and achieve greater success with women on Tinder.
Emile Ratelband, 69, argues that if transgender people are allowed to change s-x, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because doctors said he has the body of a 45-year-old.
The entrepreneur and self-help guru is suing his local authority after they refused to amend his age on official documents.
The case has caused controversy in his homeland, with the Dutch edition of Vice, a news website, asking, “Is Emile Ratelband disturbed or accidentally extremely woke?”
Mr Ratelband was born on 11th March 1949, but says he feels at least 20 years younger and wants to change his birth date to 11th March 1969.
Mr Ratelband said: “I have done a check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years. When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work.
“When I’m on Tinder and it say I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.
“Transgenders can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change.”
The Dutchman said he is discriminated against because of his age, and that he encounters problems in society on a daily basis. The court is due to deliver a written ruling within four weeks. We are await the outcome. A NEW ONE PEOPLE! LOL.
