What is it they say? Only in San Francisco …

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, better known as PETA, fired off a letter to Mayor Ed Lee today asking that the city change the name of the Tenderloin to something a little more animal-friendly.

Tracy Reiman, vice president of PETA, explains to the mayor that the name “Tenderloin” only conjures up images of meat, meat, and more meat.

“By discarding an outdated moniker that evokes the horrors of the meat trade, you'll be sending a strong message to progressive businesses and health-conscious residents that this neighborhood is ready for a fresh start,” the letter reads.
