In response to the news, the Augusta Chronicle's Rick McKee published a cartoon on the topic. The cartoon depicts one child labeled "Then: Boy Scout" and another child labeled "Now: Gender Neutral Non-Binary-Identity Person Scout."

The cartoon confused people, and went viral. They couldn't work out if "Gender Neutral Non-Binary-Identity Person Scout" was supposed to be a bad thing.

Some people started suggesting edits for the cartoon.

It got weird.

Other posts pointed out that the Girl Scouts, who have voiced concerns over the boy Scouts' announcement, have welcomed trans people for years.
