69-Year-Old “Identifies” as 45-Year-Old and Wants Legal Change



We now appear to be quickly sliding down that slippery slope.

The Daily Mail reports a 69-year old man in the Netherlands claims he “identifies as a 45-year-old” and wants the court to legally change his age.

Emile Ratelband says that doctors told him he has the body of a 45-year-old and wants to be younger so that he can attract more women on Tinder.

The self-described motivational speaker and media personality who converted to Buddhism argues that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because he “feels like a 45-year-old.”  

The court is expected to rule on the case in the next few weeks.
