荷兰男子请求改变年龄:就许你们改性别,不许我改年龄?

吉林十一选五杀号技巧 www.knqg.net  A 69-year-old Dutch man who claims to feel much younger than his actual age has gone to court to make himself legally 20 years younger.

一位69岁的荷兰男子觉得自己比实际年龄要年轻得多,于是申请法院将自己的合法年龄改为49岁。
 
Emile Ratelband, a media personality and self-described “positivity guru”, recently told a court in Arnhem, Holland, that he did not feel comfortable with his true age and compared his desire to have it legally changed with that of people who identify as transgender. Ratelband said that he would gladly renounce his pension to ensure that there were no unforeseen consequences, and tried to convince the judges that slashing two decades from his real age would have a hugely positive impact on all aspects of his life.
Emile Ratelband是一位媒体人物,并自诩“积极领袖”,他最近在荷兰阿纳姆的一家法庭上表示,他对自己的真实年龄感到不舒服,并且把自己希望改变年龄的请求跟那些跨性别者的自我性别认同作比较。Ratelband说他很乐意放弃他的退休金,以确保不会有其他麻烦。他试图说服法官,改变他的法定年龄将会对他生活的各个方面产生巨大的积极影响。
 


“We live in a time when you can change your name and change your gender. Why can’t I decide my own age?” the Dutch man asked. “When I’m 69, I am limited. If I’m 49, then I can buy a new house, drive a different car, 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.”
“在我们生活的这个时代,人们可以改变姓名和性别,那我为什么不能决定我自己的年龄呢?”这个荷兰男子问道。“当我的年龄显示是69岁时,我的生活受到了很多限制。而如果我是49岁,那我就可以买新房子,开新车,我还能继续工作。当我在Tinder(约会软件,相当于中国的“探探”)上显示的年龄是69时,我没有得到一个回复;而如果显示的是49岁,加上我的脸,我就会得到很多配对。”
 
Mr Ratelband’s case against his local authority after they refused to legally change his birth date from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969 has caused controversy in his home country. Even the judges conceded that a few years ago legal gender changes were considered impossible, while these days they are common in many developed countries, but at the same time pointed out that his request does raise some questions, like what happens to the 20 years that would be erased.
当地法院拒绝将他的出生日期由1949年3月11日改为1969年3月11日,该案件在荷兰引发了争议。就连法官们也承认,几年前,想要合法改变自己的性别几乎是不可能的,而如今,在许多发达国家,这已经是比较普遍的事了。但同时他们也指出,他的这一请求确实会带来一些问题,比如要如何处理在被抹去的20年里发生的事。
 


“Who were your parents looking after then? Who was that little boy?” one of the judges asked Ratelband, hinting that the change would essentially erase part of his life. However, the positivity guru seemed unfazed by the questions, answering only that both his parents were dead.
其中一个法官问Ratelband:“(如果抹去那20年)那当时你父母照顾的人是谁?那个小男孩又是谁?”他暗示说,这个变化会永久地抹去他生活的一部分。然而,这位“积极领袖”对这些问题毫不在意,他只是告诉法官们自己的父母已经去世了。
 
“It is really a question of free will,” Ratelband told the court, adding that he feels discriminated against because of his age. He claims that companies are reluctant to hire a 69-year-old pensioner as a consultant, while 49-year-olds have better chances of getting hired.
Ratelband在法庭说,“这真的就是一个自由意志的问题。”他说他因为自己的年龄受到了歧视。他表示,企业不愿意聘请一位69岁拿退休金的老人担任顾问,而一个49岁的人在同等情况下会有更多的机会。
 
To convince the judges, Emile Ratelband described himself as a “young god” and said that a medical check-up showed that his biological age was actually 45.
为了说服法官,Emile Ratelband把自己描述为一个“年轻的上帝”,他说,体检显示他的生理年龄实际上是45岁。
 
“I have done a check-up and what does it show? My biological age is 45 years,” the man said.
“我去做了体检,你猜怎么着?我的生理年龄显示我是45岁。”
