Emile Ratelband of the Netherlands is a motivational speaker and a media personality who says that he lives in a society where people can change their genders…….so why can’t he change his AGE?
Yep, Emile is suing in order to legally change his age to 49.
Ratelband said that if he were to legally change is age, he would have better luck dating, getting jobs and making large purchases. He explained, “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.” (Hmmmm….someone thinks a lot of their own looks, don’t they?)
Continues Rateland, “You can change your name, you can change your gender. Why not your age?”
Emile believes that he is a “young God” (humble, ain’t he??), and should have the age to fit his physique – which he thinks is amazing. He added that “nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age.” Ratelman said he will give up his pension if the court rules in his favor, since he would no longer need it as a 49-year-old man. The Arnheim city court is expected to deliver a decision on the case within a month.
What do you think? Is this guy on to something? (…personally, I think this guy is ON something, period – but maybe that’s just me). ~ Jason
