maybe because female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, sometimes with a drop of acid.
that's like chopping the glans off the penis, as opposed to removing a bit of skin.
male circumcision is pointless, but that's really it. and noone really does it outside of america except for medical or religious reasons.

Female circumcision involves removing the clitoral hood, the flap of skin surrounding the clitoris, which is functionally identical to removing the flap of skin surrounding the glans. Both of the practices lead to genital desensitization by design, they are religious sacrificial rights and there are no legitimate medical reasons to do them. It's more than just pointless, it's a violation of basic human rights.

Much like actual feminism, there are people who stand for actual men's rights, and then there are people that are just stupid.
What you two have said is the equivalent of saying

"Stop raping people, raping people is wrong"
"STFU FEMINAZI"

Not quite the same, see rape is already illegal and quite harshly punished, it used to be a capital offense punishable by death until quite recently when they realized you can't unexecute someone when the girl admits she was lying a few years later. Even the mere accusation of it can permanently destroy a mans reputation, but somehow they believe people don't take it seriously enough.

Circumcision is entirely legal, if I'm not mistaken, nowhere on earth is it illegal despite female genital mutilation being illegal in nearly every developed nation. It's fully endorsed and encouraged by the world health organization, and it has been performed on nearly 1/3 of the male population globally, it's as high as 80% in the US.

True but a 4 piece nugget is like a 1.30 so the logic makes no damn sense.
4=1.30
10=4
20=5
Like what? What is the actual value of these nuggets that make them skewer the price so badly?

the unit price for the 4 piece is 32.5 cents per nugget
the unit price for the 10 piece is 40 cents per nugget
the unit price for the 20 piece is 25 cents per nugget

This follows precisely the formula I described, you get a discount when buying in bulk, the unit price is lowered because you are purchasing more units at once.
While they would make a larger profit per item selling them in the smaller bundles, that would depend on more individual transactions actually happening, whereas the larger purchase produces more total profit per transaction. If, for example, a nugget actually cost them 10 cents each to make after factoring everything in, the total profit on a 4 piece is 90 cents, while the total profit on the 20 piece is 3 dollars. Even though selling 5 of the 4 pieces would give them $4.50 in profit, that would depend on 5 different customers who all want nuggets. If even one of those customers upgrades to a 20 piece, your profits jump.

So the unit price is lower on the large than it is on the small to encourage you to buy the large because that is the more profitable option for them. The unit price on the medium is higher than either to make the large feel more appealing. Without the overpriced medium option, people would be more frugal and choose the small more often.

If, for example, 2 people were ordering together, and both wanted nuggets, and there was no 10 piece, they would be more likely to order a 4 piece each, for a total sale price of $2.60 and a total profit of $1.80. Since the 10 piece is there, when weighing their options, they look at the 10 piece and consider splitting that instead of ordering a pair of 4 pieces, but then realize immediately what a poor decision that is. They now reevaluate the menu and see that the 20 piece is a much better value than the 10 piece, and decide to get that instead, because they are no longer directly comparing the pair of 4 pieces to the 20 piece, the overpriced 10 piece has run interference in their decision making process. They end up spending almost twice as much money and splitting a 20 piece, even though they would have both been satisfied with the pair of 4 pieces. This leads to a 192% increase in total sale price and a 166% increase in profit on this single transaction that would have been significantly less likely to happen if there were no 10 piece fiddling with their cost/value analysis.

Even if the medium trick barely increases sales of the large at all, it is still worth it because of the huge boost to profits each time it does so. There's also still the small chance that people may actually buy the overpriced medium, leading to even greater profits.

Your example makes perfect sense and is entirely in line with standard business theory. My example is the direct opposite of this profit making strategy, and actually encourages people to buy a smaller quantity per transaction and provide a smaller profit per unit at the same time. It's like anti-business sense. It even costs them more for the added cardboard used for three 4 piece boxes instead of just one 12 piece box if the customer still wants to get 12 nuggets. This system will only serve to hurt their profit margin and the only mitigating factor is people's stupidity or inattentiveness.

Where I live a ten piece nugget is like 4 bucks but a 20 piece is 5.

That's perfectly normal. Buying in bulk is supposed to provide a discount.
Also medium usually only exists to boost sales of large, it's a psychological trick that makes you feel like you are getting a better value.
If the large is exactly twice the size and twice the price of the small, most people will choose the small to save money. Adding a medium option that is exactly in the middle in size but severely skewed towards the higher side on price will drastically improve sales of the large over the small. A poorly priced medium item is just a wallet loosener.
