A 69-YEAR-OLD man has demanded to have his age legally changed, arguing judges should allow him to be younger on paper in the same way they can legally change a person’s sex.
Dutchman Emile Ratelband says he looks and feels 49-year-old, and the fact his ID claims he is 69 causes him trouble with both work and women.
Mr Ratelband, who is a famous motivational speaker and media personality in The Netherlands, was born on March 11 1949.
“When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.
“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.”
The motivational speaker claims doctors are on his side, as they had to concede his body is only 49.
Mr Ratelband said: “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.
