Transageist Dutchman Sues to be 49, Not 69

A pensioner has begun a legal battle to be recognised as being 20 years younger than his actual age so he can go back to work and achieve greater success with women on Tinder.

Emile Ratelband, 69, argues that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because doctors said he has the body of a 45-year-old.

I like It. I'm 49 but feel like I'm 18 . Can I change my date of birth so I can date younger women with a clear conscious? :mrgreen:

It will be interesting to see where this goes. On one level, it is frivolous. On another, when there are no longer absolutes, there are no longer ANY absolutes.

This is great potential. The military has maximum ages for enlistment, And airline pilots are required to retire at a certain age if I recall correctly. So now if you get up to the cut off, you can just reset the odometer. Voilà! Greatly expanded employee pool!

I think he's having fun pointing out the sheer absurdity of trans this or that.

Those who insist they're physically category 'a' when they're clearly category 'b', but furiously assert you 'must' recognize their insistence is a bona fide catalyst for physically change, is really just another weird strain of "The Emperors New Clothes" foolishness.

For some reason beyond my ken, the left loves this kind of absurdity and by gosh you better go along with it or else...

I'm 58 but could pass for and feel like 68 at times. Maybe I should sue and see if they will put me on Medicare and start my full Social Security now. :???:

Just remove everyone's date of birth, then they can't deny those under 21 their 2A rights. I'm on board.
