I would like to self-identify as 65 do I can quit my job and sue cause the reason they didn’t promote me was due to age discrimination. Then I can start collecting a pension and join AARP, and get discounts. Oh, I would also like to identify as disabled for the placard. Hope this guy wins his lawsuit and blazes that trail for me.

Ratelband is something of a celebrity in the Netherlands. He rose to fame in the 1990s with his motivational books and courses, but became most known for his eccentricity and lavish lifestyle. For example, he named two of his sons Rolls and Royce. I have no doubt that the fact that he’s making international headlines with this publicity stunt means he can die a happy man, regardless of the outcome. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emile_Ratelband

I had to double check to make sure this wasn't Rolf Harris...

If I'm an Apache attack helicopter but I'm white, is that cultural appropriation? Well, it seems to work for Elizabeth Warren, at least.

I'm confused why this story is topping the charts. Is this really such a big deal in contrast with everything else happening in the world? I'm legitimately curious.

Back in the day, if someone identified as "Napoleon", we would put him in a padded room, for his own safety, wearing extra-long sleeves. He might just be taking the piss on the postmodern culture, or he might actually be mentally ill. But, because this behavior is now encouraged, we can't tell, and we can't stop them.

Oh, but we shouldn't speak of slippery slopes, because they're not real and we're nothing but crazy conspiracy theorists!

I used to think that the slippery slope argument was false... until I saw it happen time after time with my own eyes.

OK. This isn't good. While I strongly believe there should be a left and right wing, the left have clearly gone too far. For some reason the extreme left is still a thing in the media. It's led to this. There should be no extremes left or right. To the right wing reading this, the smart left will soon see this extreme has gone too far.
Janitor Jez Socks 6 months
Yes. Its disgusting. How could anyone condone a guy who doesn't want to look like he is dating his own mother when he takes her out to dinner. It must be a leftist conspiracy.

I am all for this. I want to be legally older so I can start recieving my government pension, heating allowances, free prescriptions, get my loft insulated,bus pass and get away with being a cranky old git. Its a beezer idea.
