Dutch media personality Emile Ratelband, 69, is determined to continue fighting to be legally recognized as younger despite losing in court. The people enjoy “free will,” and the governments just have to adapt, Ratelband believes.
The controversial case that garnered worldwide media attention was rejected by the court earlier this week, which ruled that the man could not legally change his age on the grounds of simply “feeling” 20 years younger.
Why it is possible to change your family name, while people can change their nationality, and even change their gender. So if people can change all those things, based on so-called free will, it must be possible to feel and be younger and work longer!
People can choose their own holiday, their own partnership, and can f*** around with women or with men, it must also be possible to choose their own age.
Ratelband has also brought up some sort of medical reasoning behind his desire to become 20 years younger, claiming that his doctor told him a couple years ago that he actually was in his 40’s “biologically.
He has also repeatedly argued that he felt “discriminated” against due to his his age, in ways such as not scoring enough on dating apps and getting fewer work opportunities.
The court was apparently not impressed with his reasoning, rejecting his appeal on grounds that it could set a dangerous precedent and ultimately jeopardize the whole system of age-based regulations.
The defeat in court has left Ratelband unshaken. He says that everything is actually going according to plan. He now plans to take his case all the way through the low morale Dutch legal system and up to the international human rights courts.
