A 69-year-old man who identifies as a 45-year-old has begun a legal battle to lower his age to help him pull women on Tinder.
Emile Ratelband argues that if transgender people are allowed to change their sex, then he should be allowed to change his date of birth.
The entrepreneur and self-help guru says doctors told him he he has the body of a 45-year-old, and he’s suing his local authority in The Netherlands after they refused to amend his age on official documents.
Emile Ratelband, 69, says he identifies as a 45-year-old.
Mr Ratelband’s case has now gone to a court in the city of Arnhmen in the eastern Dutch province of Gelderland.
He was born on March 11, 1949, but he says he feels at least 20 years younger and wants to change his birth date to March 11, 1969, which will make him 49.
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 says 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.
