Bizarro Kindlerotica + Real Person Slash = Protest Porn

I have posted before about how the bizarro edge of erotica, especially evident on Kindle, has expanded the genre well-beyond topics that the author or reader would seriously consider sexy.

If you combine this freedom from what would previous have been considering the central tenant of erotica, will the practice of writing erotica (including gay erotica) about real people.... you end up with protest porn.

And in yet a further development while "real person slash" is often about musicians (especially boy bands) this example is actually written by one.

Specifically the Decemberist lead singer Colin Meloy is writing erotic unfan-fiction about the militia members occupying an Oregon wildlife center.  An idea that has now taken off under #bundyeroticfanfic
