Man sues to lower age because ‘you can change your gender’

A 69-year-old Dutch media personality is trying to legally reduce his age by 20 years, comparing his campaign to the struggle for transgender rights. Emile Ratelband, 69, wants to change his birth date from March 1949 to March 1969 to improve his prospects on dating app Tinder and match what prosecutors are calling his “emotional age,” according to Dutch news outlet Algemeen Dagblad. The author, public speaker and media personality told the court in Arnhem: “We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why can’t I decide my own age?” according to BBC News. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46133262
