69 y/o wants to legally change his age to 49, seeing as trans people are out there changing genders

weird shit 08/11/2018

Ladies and gents, introducing the internet's cooked keeeent of the week.

Meet Emile Ratelband, he's 69, lives in the Netherlands and reckons he should be allowed to legally turn the clock back and be 49 again. 


Why? Because if he was 49 he reckons his chances of scoring on Tinder would be far greater. 

When I’m on Tinder and it say I’m 69, I don’t get an answer.


His doctors told him he had the body of a 45-year-old, which really seemed to go to the pensioner's head. Emile's since launched a legal battle to switch his birthday from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969.

Local authoritites are refusing to give into the ol' bastards requests so he's now suing them, arguing if transgender people are allowed to change their sex, why can't he change his age?

Those two things are ever so slightly different, mate...

Emile is putting up a good fight though, explaining: "I have done a check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years."

"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 say 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."

Transgenders can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change.


Age is just a number eh, mate?
