You can change your gender.

Another motivation for changing his age is the fact that the father of seven has another two children on the way, both by surrogates.

Emile Ratelband wants the courts to legally change his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969.

Ratelband cites several reasons as to why he wants to lower his age from 69 years to 49 years.

Therefore, Ratelband says, if he identifies himself as a man 20 years younger than he is, he should be allowed similar changes to his documents.

He said: "When I'm 69, I am limited".

Mr Emile Ratelbrand, an entrepreneur and self-help guru, is hoping that doing so will get him better luck with women, especially when he goes on dating app Tinder, as well as better job prospects. After all, Ratelband says, "When I'm on Tinder and say I'm 69, I don't get an answer".

'If I'm 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different vehicle.

The judge said that he had some sympathy with Mr Ratelband as people could now change their gender which would once have been unthinkable.

Ratelband said while he was initially greeted by "jeers" from magistrates, he now believes his lawyer -famous criminal lawyer Jan-Hein Kuijpers had "unsettled" the judge.

Ratelband said during the prosecutor told him "we need to know your biological age to control you", which he said is "exactly the problem".

The Dutchman even says that he'll give up his pension if the court rules in his favor, saying that as a 49-year-old man, he would no longer need it.

The life coach, who specialises in "self awareness" training, said he felt discriminated against because of his advanced years. In Australia, for example, many older people struggle to find work once they reach their 50s and 60s, despite the fact that it is illegal for companies to specifically discriminate against candidates due to their age. "When I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position", Ratelband told BBC News.
