I'll admit this now, self harmers are stupid. they decided a fate that can kill them. and why would you like to harm yourself, if there is a problem you should tell your parents or an adult, not cut yourself while you die slowly
You think they are stupid. You are admitting a personal opinion, which is not a fact.
Self harm doesn't lead to suicide, contrary to most assumptions. It doesn't kill you slowly. Only when a mistake is made, does it usually lead to something worse. Infections are a serious risk, but are pretty uncommon honestly. I'm not defending self harm, because it is a serious problem and needs to be dealt with by a proper professional, however there's more than just black and white here.
If the blade has a infectious virus it could kill you slowly, I have seen people cut there veins and die because they cut it too deep, it is possible for the blade to kill you slowly and quickly.
"Only when a mistake is made, does it usually lead to something worse." That statement clearly addresses your second point. Also, I addressed infections. They are uncommon, and when they do occur, are very treatable. Yes, it is possible, but highly unlikely, and most anyone, in their right mind or not, would get medical treatment before it comes to that point. It's very rare to see someone actually die from self harm. Suicidal behaviour, however, is more often the killer.
Infections is the uncommon, that is true. But I have seen the self harmers cut too deep and die of loss of blood. I have seen it in the news a few times, the deep cut kills more then the infection.
