    Also What about it? = So what? meaning what you're saying is not relevant/is nothing to do with the issue in question.

    That you do not feel a statement or comment just made to you has validity or anything worth your consideration.


    A: The Principal has banned cycling on campus.
    B: What of it? I don't cycle.

    Even more dismissive is "So what?"

    ...even 'So..?'; also 'And...?' or 'And then?' (I think this may have something to do with the French 'Et alors?')
