Man wants to “identify” as younger to score babes
A Dutch pensioner has started a legal battle to legally change his age and boost his dating prospects.
Emile Ratelband, 69, wants to shift his birthday from 11 March 1949 to 11 March 1969, comparing the change to identifying as being transgender.
See! Once you allow people to choose their gender, the flood gates are open!
“You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age?” he told Dutch paper De Telegraaf.
A local court in the city of Arnhem, south-east of Amsterdam, is expected to rule on the case within four weeks.
Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reported the court was sceptical of the suit, saying there was no legal mechanism allowing a person to change their birth date.
But Mr Ratelband argued he feels discriminated against because of his age, and that it was affecting his employment chances and his success rate on the dating app, Tinder.
Can he win his case? Hell, today who knows, but he will never beat Father Time
Three British professors bark that numbers “serve white racial interests” and are therefore bad:
Led by David Gillborn, a professor at the University of Birmingham, the professors argue that math serves white interests because it can “frequently encode racist perspectives beneath the facade of supposed quantitative objectivity.”
“Contrary to popular belief, and the assertions of many quantitative researchers, numbers are neither objective nor color-blind,” Gillborn and his team assert in their article for the journal Race, Ethnicity, and Education.
Because “data is often used to shut down, silence, and belittle equity work,” we need to replace statistics with “QuantCrit” (“quantitative analysis” + “critical race theory”).
[K]ey tenets of QuantCrit theory include realizing that math tends to legitimate existing racial inequalities, acknowledging that numerical analyses disadvantage minorities, and understanding how numbers play to the benefit of white interests.
This is idiocy on steroids. Complete and utter nonsense.
