69-year-old Pensioner Attempting To Legally Change His Age To 49!

A 69-year-old man has launched a legal campaign to have his age changed to 45-years-old, after asking ‘if you can change your name or your gender, why not your age?’.

The Dutch entrepreneur claims that he has the body of a 49-year-old and that he will have more luck on Tinder if he can list his age as 49 rather than 69.

Mr Ratelband told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, ‘You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age? Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age.’

He added, ‘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.’

The case has been taken to court in Arnhmen, Gelderland, where it is expected to give a ruling within four weeks.
