69 year-old man identifies with being 20 launches legal battle

This is worse than the white woman who identifies as being black:

A 69-year-old Dutch entrepreneur has launched a legal battle to change his age in the hope of boosting his chances of finding a partner.

Emile Ratelband, who was born March 11, 1949, told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf he wants to legally move his birthday to March 11, 1969 because he identifies as a much younger man.

Ratelband is taking action against his local authority after he was prevented from changing his age on official documents. It is really a question of free will, he told a court in Arnhem Thursday, De Telegraaf reports. The court is expected to rule on the case in the next four weeks.

We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why cant I decide my own age? he said.

Ratelband argued he has been the victim of age discrimination and that the change would afford him more freedom in other areas of his life. Doctors had told him he had the body of a 45-year-old, he said.

When Im on Tinder and it says Im 69, I dont get an answer. When Im 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position. When Im 69, I am limited. If Im 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work, he said.
