Emile Ratelband: 69-year old Dutch man loses legal battle to change age to 49 [The Washington Post]

A 69-year-old man in the Netherlands has lost his court battle to have himself legally declared 49 years old. He says if people can change their gender he should be able to change his age.

Intuitively, I know this is bullshit but I am having difficulty articulating why.

The liberal redneck got some thoughts on this transgender bathroom mess

Funny accent, good points.

Unlike the liberal redneck here, I don’t ridicule cisgender people who are uncomfortable with transgender people using the restroom of their choosing. Gender identity is confusing if you haven’t given it much thought. And most people don’t give it much thought because they don’t need to.

Save your scorn for the political leaders who feed fears about imaginary transgender sexual predators.
