Dutch Pensioner Identifies Himself as 20 Years Younger, Demands Legal Age Change

'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 public prosecutor in the court asked whether the ability to change a date of birth in the law would require health inspections in the future, to allow the state to correctly judge someone's "emotional age".

Ratelband cites several reasons as to why he wants to lower his age from 69 years to 49 years.

Ratelband argues that "nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age".

Doctors had told him his body was that of a 45-year-old man, Ratelband argued.

He said: 'When I'm 69, I am limited.

After local authorities refused to amend his date of birth on official documents, the self-proclaimed "young God" has taken his case to court to toy with time and change his birth year from 1949 to 1969.

A Dutch pensioner is attempting to legally lower his age in an attempt to bolster his success in finding dates on Tinder.

"When I'm on Tinder and it say I'm 69, I don't get an answer. If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle", he said.

The judge said he sympathized with Rathelband - a neurolinguistic programming trainer who converted to Buddhism earlier this year - considering that changing one's gender was unthinkable in the past, according to the outlet. I can take up more work.

As the Cut points out, "luxurious" might be a euphemism - in a translation by CNN, Ratelband says, "When I'm 49 with [this face], then I'm rammed". If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different auto.

The BBC reported a court will rule on the matter within a month.

Ratelband said during the prosecutor told him "we need to know your biological age to control you", which he said is "exactly the problem".

"For whom did your parents care in those years?" He also says having a younger age on paper would give him a boost in life, and on dating apps.
