Dutch man, 69, starts legal fight to identify as 20 years younger | World news | The Guardian
A 69-year-old Dutch “positivity guru” who says he does not feel his age has started a battle to make himself legally 20 years younger on the grounds that he is being discriminated against on a dating app.

Emile Ratelband told a court in Arnhem in the Netherlands that he did not feel “comfortable” with his date of birth, and compared his wish to alter it to people who identified as transgender.

Ratelband said that due to having an official age that did not reflect his emotional state he was struggling to find both work and love. He has asked for his date of birth to be changed from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969.

“When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car,” he said. “I can take up more work. 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.”

William Utermohlen | Issues in Science and Technology Oct 2018
In 1995 Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Signs of his illness are retrospectively apparent in the work of the early 1990s, notably in the Conversation Pieces, which depict the warmth and happiness of his relationship with his wife, art historian Patricia Redmond, and his rich companionship with friends.
