Dutch television personality Emile Ratelband asks for age-related justice


69-year-old television staff has asked the Dutch court to confirm his request for a new birthday, which he would legalize 49.

Emoilly Ratebands thinks that age is just one figure and the Dutchman wants her to change.

69-year-old television staff has asked the Dutch court to confirm his request for a new birth, which would officially mean him 49.

Ratelband said his legal appeal met other forms of personal transformation that are accepted and recognized in the Netherlands and around the world.

"This is free[dom] Optional choice of name, gender dissatisfaction, I want to have my own age. I want to control myself, "he said on Thursday.

Ratelband said it wants to avoid age discrimination in society, especially in relation to dating sites.

"So when I ask for a mortgage, for example, they say it's not possible," he told the Associated Press. "If I go to Tinder, then I'll get women from 68, 69 when women are there."

How about being just economical with the truth about his age?

"I do not want a lie," he said. "I want to be myself, so do not make me lie."

Marjolein van den Brink, who specializes in human rights and gender issues at Utrecht University of Law, said that age discrimination is a problem, but differs from issues related to gender reps.

"It is absolutely clear that older people have much less chance of getting a job than younger people," she said. "But this is just one element, and only after you reach the age of 40, 45, 50, it only happens with something dependent on your work.

"Although the gender is the one who follows you from birth to grave, it's almost everything – and not just in the job market, but everywhere," she said.

In rare cases, even the race has become easier.

In the UK, theatrical director Anthony Ekundayo Lennon is partly attracted by attention because, despite being a white Irish parent, he looks like a mixed race. He has also written and told journalists that he considers himself black.

He says he has been abusive as a teenager because of his appearance, and when he started acting, he acknowledged that it was easier to implement an unprocessed part. He also received the middle name of Africa.

Now some black artists complain because Lennon was recently awarded a paid traineeship program designed to get more black people to an artistic career.

His case, in some respects, is similar to Rachel Dolezal, a white woman in the United States who identified himself as black after she was raised by religious parents who had taken four black children. She worked at NAACP when her rus was discovered in 2015.

Ratelband said the Dutch government could benefit from accepting his age request. He said he would love to lose his monthly pension of around 1200 euros (1370 euros) – the concession he calculated would save nearly 300,000 euros (343,000 euros) in 20 years when he would want to remove his age.

Arnhem City Court has to hand over a decision about four weeks.

The Ratelband, which lives by encouraging people and businesses to be positive, denies that age demands are an ad trick. He claims he is looking for a personal positive effect.

"Now I'm an old man, I have to save my money to give my children so they can live," said the seven father. "But if I have this age again, I hope again that I am new again. I have the whole future again."
