Benefits. The man maintains that his age has kept him from getting a job, as no one wants to hire someone of his age. He also believes that changing his age will benefit not just him, but the government as he would be required to give up his pension.
Free. "With this free(dom) of choice, choice of name, freeness of gender, I want to have my own age. I want to control myself. So when I ask for a mortgage, for example, they say it's impossible. If I go on Tinder, then I get women from 68, 69 when women are there,” said Ratelband, as reported by Yahoo.
Truth. When asked why he simply doesn’t just bend the truth when it comes to his age, he responded with: "I don't want to lie. I want to be myself, so don't force me to lie."
