PETA Suggests to San Francisco They Rename the ‘Tenderloin’ to ‘Tempeh’ ::the protein-packed fermented soybean product::

In their ever amazing viral PR efforts PETA, people for the ethical treatment of animals, suggested San Francisco Officials should rename the Tenderloin District, to the Tempeh District–the protein-packed fermented soybean product.

I  prefer Firm Tofu (District).

As covered in the San Francisco Chronicle:

With city officials contemplating a proposal to rejuvenate the struggling Mid-Market and Tenderloin with a payroll tax break to lure more businesses to the two neighborhoods, the activist organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals suggests another way to — at least — revitalize the Tenderloin:

Rename it the Tempeh District after the protein-packed fermented soybean product.

”The city deserves a neighborhood named after a delicious cruelty-free food instead of the flesh of an abused animal,” PETA’s executive vice president, Tracy Reiman, wrote in a letter sent Tuesday to Mayor Ed Lee.

The word Tenderloin has dual meaning: the most tender part of a cut of meat (PETA’s beef, er, complaint) and an urban district notorious for vice (the reputation of the San Francisco neighborhood that city officials hope to put in the past tense).

There's the beef...
