"Just Kidding"

An evolution of the acronym "jk" for "just kidding" is associated with the celebrated author J.K. Rowling. Over time, the "J.K." was dropped and shortened the term to "Rowling"
"He said that he didn't feel like coming to the party, but when he eventually showed up, he claimed he was just Rowling."

Rowling (to rowl) is to decide retroactively that a character in a work of fiction represented a marginalized community of the creator's choosing all along, even though they had neglected to write it into the source material. In the best cases, it's a nod to a particularly beloved fanon who really want to see confirmation of popular theories where it could exist. In the worst cases, it's an attempt for creator's to appear more inclusive and progressive than they really are.
Looks like Jojo hasn't caused another uproar on twitter in a while... wonder if she will rowl someone soon. Who's left? I personally don't

Blizzard keeps rowling their characters, like how Symmetra is now canonically autistic and canonically Tracer is now a lesbian. They almost say something but neglect to mention how they should have been thinking about these traits in the first place rather than do it retroactively to look inclusive. But also, gay Tracer is cute...

A Rowles is basically the hardest person ever. Being pretty much good at anything. There is nothing that a Rowles can be ripped on for except for lack of keeping a perfectly clean household due to an adventurous lifestyle. A rowles is also a big fan of people who are talanted at things similar to him.
Man I can see how Adam is totally a rowles, he is so dece! -Chris
