Emile Ratelband told a court in Arnhem, the Netherlands that he was "not comfortable with his date of birth" and expressed his desire to change it, as well as those seeking gender conversion.

He asked to change his date of birth from March 11, 1949 to March 11, 1969.

The prosecutor's court asked if the possibility of changing the date of birth in the law would require future health checks to allow the state to assess someone's "emotional age".
