This man wants to be trans-age

The judge said that he had some sympathy with Mr Ratelband as people could now change their gender which would once have been unthinkable. Why not your age?

Ratelband said that due to having an official age that did not reflect his emotional state he was struggling to find both work and love.

'When I'm 69, I am limited. "If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different auto", Ratelband told British newspaper The Guardian. "If I put my age on Tinder, women say "you're much too old", he told Euronews. "When I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position", he said.

Therefore, Ratelband says, if he identifies himself as a man 20 years younger than he is, he should be allowed similar changes to his documents.

United States exempts India-backed port in Iran from sanctions
India was, on Monday, among eight countries that received a temporary waiver on U.S sanctions with regard to Iranian oil imports. In addition, Afghanistan will be allowed to continue importing Iranian petroleum products, the spokesman said.


He also said he would renounce his pension if he switched his birth date.

Ratelband, who has referred to himself as a "young god", has taken the matter to court in the city of Arnhem and is expected to get a ruling on the case in the next four weeks.

Ratelband says his legal appeal is consistent with other forms of personal transformation that are gaining acceptance and government recognition in the Netherlands and around the world. "We even have the right to change our name", Ratelband said.

"For whom did your parents care in those years?" the judge pressed Rathelband in court. Who was that little boy back then?' the judge asked. The Netherlands' constitution "prohibits direct and indirect distinction in employment relations on the basis of age", but some claim that people over 50 have been the most impacted by austerity measures in the country.

"I feel much younger than my real age", he added, "as do a lot of people".

Mr Ratelband, a media personality and motivational guru, converted to Buddhism earlier this year and is a trainer in neurolinguistic programming.

However, the court presented a similarly valid argument, saying that changing Ratelband's age would essentially mean legally deleting a period of his life.
