We all knew this was coming. Whether or not you agree with the virtue of encouraging legal self-reported identity, it is clear that the line becomes more and more blurry the more it gets pushed back. The whole "I identify as an attack helicopter" cliche may be an exaggeration, but it points to a relevant truth.

How is it possible that a man does this before a woman? How odd.

I dunno, with comments like "I am a young god" and "my doctor said I have the body of a 45 year old" he seems to fit the stereotype of an old man who thinks he's a fucking stallion even though he's past his prime. I see your point, but I'm not surprised that it was a man.

Women have just been lying about their age since before the internet even existed. If anything this guy is several thousand years late to the party.

I guess I'm just surprises no woman has tried to do this through legal channels (as far as I know). To be honest, I wonder if it would make it too obvious and hence, why a self-absorbed man would be the first. Seriously, though, when a woman tries to hide her age, I just assume she's much older than she looks.

Well biological facts don't exist these days so... Wonder when the sane majority will finally say enough is enough to identity politics?

Eventually there won't be a sane majority; we'll be the minority. And soon enough, opposing opinions (or in many cases, facts) will be completely censored. I guess George Orwell wal only half a century or so off...

He feels like he is 16, so it isn't pedophilia.

Thijs: And the 16 year old identifies as an old man, so it is he/xe who gets charged with the statutory rape of a 16-year old in a 69-year old's body. It's complicated...

If a man can "become" a woman why can't a 60 year old "become" a 20 year old? I smell age-ism...

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

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.

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.
