69-year-old man asks court to lower his age to 20

69-year-old man asks court to lower his age to 20”

Ratelband told the daily Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

The judge working on Ratelband's lawsuit reportedly expressed sympathy for his case, opining that not so long ago the idea of sex change had been unthinkable. Why not your age?

The self-proclaimed positivity guru argued that he feels 20 years younger, and compared the age difference to being transgender, despite the concept being completely different from biological genders.

He said: 'When I'm 69, I am limited. "If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle", Ratelband told British newspaper The Guardian. "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 vehicle.

Ratelband said he is willing to renounce his pension if the court grants his wish, though the chances of it happening appear slim as it's believed there is no legal way for a person to change their date of birth.

The case has gone to a court in Arnhmen, Gelderland, where it is expected to give a ruling within four weeks. He has asked for his date of birth to be changed from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969.

Good to know you're never too old to be a fucboi on Tinder.

"I feel much younger than my real age", he added, "as do a lot of people".

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". "We can make our own decisions if we want to change our name, or if we want to change our gender".

"For whom did your parents care in those years? Who was that little boy back then?"

The motivational speaker, a well-known media personality in Holland, is suing his local authority after they refused his application to amend his age.

Ratelband told a court in Arnhem that having an official age that did not reflect his emotional state was a challenge for his career and love life, according to The Guardian.
