    More Discrimination going on in the world than we realise :sherlock:

    A Dutch pensioner has started a legal battle to legally change his age and boost his dating prospects.
    Emile Ratelband, 69, wants to shift his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969, comparing the change to identifying as being transgender.
    "You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age?" he told Dutch paper De Telegraaf.
    A local court in the city of Arnhem, south-east of Amsterdam, is expected to rule on the case within four weeks.
    Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reported the court was sceptical of the suit, saying there was no legal mechanism allowing a person to change their birth date.
    But Mr Ratelband argued he feels discriminated against because of his age, and that it was affecting his employment chances and his success rate on the dating app, Tinder.
    "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," he said.
    "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."

    I think it will be a game changer if he wins. Imagine all the peeps in the UK who will ask to be made older in order to draw their state pension as it's been pushed back now. I might have a go myself. Get my age changed to draw the dosh. Then put myself on Tinder as "A young, financially independent 67yr old" and wait for the "you don't look your age" comments. Winner :hehe:

    How long before someone wants to change the race that they were assigned at birth?

    I might, for example, wish to identify as a teenage Asian rapper, but then again I would face accusations of cultural appropriation.

    I just phoned the ticket office and said "I'm now classing myself as 12, can I have a cheap ticket for the family stand?" They said "go fuck yourself".

    I’m also hearing that Gary Madine’s Claim to self identify as a premier league footballer has been rejected

    You’d have to give up your old man ‘sport’ though.

    Just setting yourself up for real disappointment when the "you don't look your age" comments don't materialise
