Man: Age Change Will Improve Luck on Tinder

Ratelband wants his legal age to be changed to 49.

A Dutch businessman is making waves after he launched a legal battle to officially roll back his age 20 years - claiming he is a "young god" and dating apps discriminate against him due to his age.

And he says his move would also be good news for the government as he would be renouncing his pension until he reaches retirement age again.

He presented his argument before a judge on Monday.

Meet Emile Ratelband, a life coach and "positivity guru" who wants to legally change his birth date to March 11, 1969 because his current age has the man "limited".

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.

He returned a year ago , with success, and for the 2018 spring carnival had an early victory with Jungle Cat at Group One level. Trying to win races in Australia is even more expensive, with flights from Europe costing as much as $68,000 per animal.

Ratelband reasons that he lives in a society where people can change their genders, so, to him, it only makes sense that he can change his age.

But in the Netherlands, people have to provide a statement from an "expert" confirming their "permanent conviction" that their gender assigned at birth isn't the gender they identify as. Ratelband said in an interview with the outlet. "If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle", he said. "I can take up more work", he said.

"When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer, " he complains, adding that he's far most optimistic about his prospects as a 49-year-old, "with the face I have".

One of the judges wanted to know what would become of the 20 years that Mr Ratelband wanted to erase. He does not specify whether that "age focus" refers to his physical age or his emotional age. He also argued that according to his doctors, he has the body of a 45-year-old. He called it a question of free will. We even have the right to change our name.

A Dutchman is suing to change his age from 69 to 49. "My feeling about my body and about my mind is that I'm about 40 or 45".

"I feel young, I am in great shape and I want this to be legally recognised because I feel abused, aggrieved and discriminated against because of my age".
