Listen, 2018 is real wild! Emile Ratelband, a Dutch entrepreneur, has started a whole legal process to change his age from 69-years-old to 45-years-old. 

He says, “You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age? Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age.”


Chile, that’s a crazy, yet valid question when you put it that way. Emile’s doctor must have hyped him up real good when he told him he had the body of someone 20 years younger than him, because this is reportedly how all this started. He feels as though his love life as well as his work options would be better if he could identify as a 45 year old. 

“When I’m on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.” He added, “When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car. I can take up more work.


It’s being reported that officials are a little skeptical about this particular case as there isn’t necessarily any legal way that allows a person to change their whole age.

Well, good luck to Emile on this quest. Would y’all change your age if it was actually a thing? If that’s the case I’m 5, and therefore can no longer take care of any of my responsibilities please and thanks…
