They say 69 is the new 49. No, no one really says that. Except for one Dutch man who has just launched a legal battle to make the courts change his age. Emile Ratelband argues that if people can swap their gender in the eyes of the law, he should have a similar privilege, asking the BBC, “Why can’t I decide my own age?” Ratelband claims that at 69 he doesn’t get enough responses on Tinder and that listing himself 20-years younger will make him more desirable. “When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position,” he says. A court in the Netherlands will take up the case, issuing a ruling in about four weeks.
