Dutch­maN, 69, goes to court to be 49

The Sunday Guardian - - The Week -

LON­DON: A Dutch “pos­i­tiv­ity guru” has launched a le­gal bat­tle to change his age and boost his dat­ing prospects.

The 69-year-old Emile Ratel­band says he does not feel his age and hence has started a law­suit to make him legally 20 years younger to be­come a “catch” on dat­ing app, Tin­der.

Ratel­band wants to shift his birth­day from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969, com­par­ing the change to iden­ti­fy­ing as be­ing trans­gen­der.

“We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gen­der. Why can’t I de­cide my own age?” he was quoted as say­ing.
