Baby Boomer In Legal Fight To Lower His Age Because He Can’t Cop A Root On Tinder

69-year-old Emile Ratelband, can't get any action despite being the age of the sex number.

69 Year old man identifies As 49 Can't Get A date wants to lower his age

Given that the world is nearing critical mass when it comes to the amount of intolerable, shithead men about, you have to be particularly heinous to rise above the day-to-day arseholery on offer and grab the world’s attention. So congrats, we guess, to this huge giant piss baby from the Netherlands who is attempting to legally lower his age as he “identifies” as someone younger.

Emile Ratelband has taken his push to legally alter his birthdate from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969 to a local court, stating that he identifies as someone twenty years younger.

His reasoning is as multifaceted as it is complete and utter bullshit, with Ratelband stating he doesn’t get enough attention on Tinder, he can’t buy a house (ummm, what?) and more disgustingly, that trans people can change their gender so why can’t a salty boomer arsehole change his age?

“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,” he said to the BBC, ridiculously.

Firstly, Ratelband is currently aged 69 which is quite frankly just a wondrous age to be, as you get to be the age of the sex number for a full 12 months! Why would you want to miss out on that? Nice etc.!

More importantly, though this shitlord is purposefully utilising the language and discourse that LGBTIQ people, more specifically trans and gender-fluid individuals, use in order to describe their journey through legitimate gender dysphoria and sexual identities.

The whole “duuhhh if they can identify as a different gender than I can identify as a fighter jet hurrrrrrr” thing is a favourite of the bigoted far-right who are unable to comprehend the difference between choosing something and being born/placed into the wrong gender and suffering the hellish discrimination and struggle to reconcile a true self that comes along with it.

Sure ageism is definitely a thing that causes discrimination in many facets of the world but this transphobic attention-seeking stunt does absolutely nothing to combat the structural and cultural issues that contribute to it.

So yeah, fuck this guy and his dumbass quest to get more swipes on Tinder. Just take a pic with a dog like the rest of us and suck it up, you old-ass wankjob.
