69-Year-Old Dutch Man Wants to Legally Change His Age to 40: Uses Transgender Arguments

Calvin Freiburger : Nov 9, 2018 : LifeSiteNews

"This is American thinking. Why can't I change my age if I want to? You have to stretch yourself. If you think you can jump one meter, now I want to jump 20. If you earn 100 grand a month, now I want to earn 120 grand." – Emile Ratelband

(Netherlands) — [Lifesitenews.com] A 69-year-old Dutch man is fighting to have his birth certificate legally changed to state that he is twenty years younger on account of him feeling like he is really 49. The story highlights the next turn in the ongoing debate over the "fluidity" of immutable physical characteristics such as biological sex. (Photo Credit: Emile Ratelband/ YouTube screenshot)

Emile Ratelband is a 69-year-old life coach from Arnhem, a town southeast of Amsterdam. He has gone to court in hopes of getting a court to change his birth certificate to say he was born on March 11, 1969 instead of his actual date of birth, March 11, 1949.

"Nowadays, in Europe and in the United States, we are free people," Ratelband told the Washington Post in an interview published Thursday. "We can make our own decisions if we want to change our name, or if we want to change our gender. So I want to change my age. My feeling about my body and about my mind is that I'm about 40 or 45."

He argues that he has the physical and mental fitness of a much younger man, and a legal declaration to that effect would benefit him both professionally and romantically.
