Dutch Man Wants To Legally Change His Age

Emile Ratelband said he would have better luck on Tinder if his age was changed

Emile Ratelband, a media personality and motivational speaker, finds his actual age of 69 very limiting and has filed a lawsuit to have it legally lowered by twenty years.

Do you think this man should be allowed to change his name?

The judge conceded that the ability to change gender was a development in the law. "Why not your age?"

Mr Ratelband believes that he is discriminated against because of his age and wants a local court in the city of Amhem, south-east of Amsterdam, to rule on the case after his local authority refused to change his age on official documents. He wants to change his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969. "When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer", he said. If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different auto. If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different auto.

Emile Ratelband argues that if transgender people are allowed to change their sex, then he should be allowed to change his date of birth.

Ratelband is a pensioner and has said that if he does get to legally change his age, he will stop claiming the pension.

However, while he's not had any luck on Tinder, it's not clear if he's attempted using dating apps designed specifically for older users.

"Transgender people can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change".

He said he fears companies won't hire him, and that employees will look at him differently.

He also said he would renounce his pension if he was allowed to switched his birth date. "I can take up more work", he continued.

The man described himself as young God and said his doctors said he has a body of 45-year-old!

"For whom did your parents care?" Who was that little boy back then?' the judge asked.

This would essentially be deleting the first 20 years of Mr Ratelbrand's life, the judge added.

A court in Arnhem, in the eastern Dutch provice of Gelderland, is expected to deliver its decision on Ratelband's age within four weeks.
