Man, 69, applies to legally change age because he ‘identifies as 20 years younger’

Emile Ratelband, a motivational speaker, entrepreneur and former daytime TV programme host, is attempting to move his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969.

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

Not strictly UK News but as any fule kno all the best posters are here.

Personally I'm watching this closely. I'd like to identify as a 75 year old and give retirement a go while I still have all my marbles.

I identify as a chicken tikka masala

I love this man, what a star.

I identify as super rich. I'm going to apply to banks to change my status, and demand they change my bank balances accordingly.

Challenging the stale old parameters of one's demographic is the latest form of self-empowerment and should be enshrined in law NOW.

WibbleAgain - 08 Nov 2018 13:25:12 (#6 of 47)

I also identify as young, tall, slim and beautiful. I demand all the supermodel jobs be given to me.

Is this fellow in cohort denial?

Wouldn't it have just been easier to fake his age on Tinder as loads of other men surely do?

Now with the publicity, even if he changes his age legally, prospective dates can Google him and find out his real age.

I'd like to identify as 67 so I can have my state pension now !

Only another year to go, Mr. Impatient.

FrankieTeardrop - 08 Nov 2018 15:28:49 (#12 of 47)

A lot of identity erasure going on here. You should all be ashamed of your literal violence.

Tenesmus - 08 Nov 2018 16:05:52 (#13 of 47)

I self-identify as a really dull poster, and don't you dare contradict me.

TheExcession - 08 Nov 2018 16:11:59 (#14 of 47)

I identify as a ruggedly handsome billionaire with his own spaceship and I DEMAND that my rights be recognised by an uncaring world.

The pioneer in this field was of course Brandon Lee. What became of him?

Isn't this just taking the piss out of Very Serious Things that Cannot Be Joked About?

all I know is, I don't want to share a bathroom with this guy.

You are not thinking about this properly.

I want to identify as 120, buy an anuity, and retire now.
