Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I have reached the finals in the Miss Universe Canada pageant. Pretty impressive for someone who was born a male, right!? What do you think my chances of winning are?

Answer: Probably zero unless you keep that "born a male" information to yourself. Pageant rules ban transsexuals or anyone else who is not a "naturally born female." (International Business TimesJenna Talackova: Miss Universe Canada Dumps Transsexual Finalist Who Is Not a 'Naturally Born Female')

2) Question: I'm a male enjoying a trip on a gay cruise ship. Sex is allowed onboard, right? 

Answer: Of course -- unless your cruise ship docks in the country of Dominica, where "buggery" is illegal. (The Consumerist, Two Men Arrested For Having Sex With Each Other On Gay Cruise Ship)

3) Question: I work at a brewery in Lithuania, and our working conditions are terrible. The workers are contemplating going out on strike -- any advice?

Answer: Sorry, but the Lithuanian courts have deemed brewing to be an "essential service" like medical supplies and drinking water. No strike for you. (Lowering the Bar, Court Declares Brewing Beer an "Essential Service")
