Faith in Humanity: -9000

So, yesterday, since it was Self-Harm Awareness Day, I was talking about it to one of my friends, expecting him to have an open mind about it.

wow was I wrong.

First he says, "Why would anyone want to celebrate that?" I tried to explain that it wasn't for celebration, it was to make people aware that it exists because they typically just ignore it and say that there's no way that anyone would do that. He retorts with saying, "yeah, I am able cut myself, so what?"
I've never seen someone so ignorant, and that is saying a lot considering the people I go to school with. Why don't they understand?
It made me kind of pissed off for the rest of the day. How would you guys handle it?
