The latest @nymag cover story explores what it’s like to be “canceled” in high school, where student-led calls for accountability can spiral into bullying, false accusations, and permanent ostracization. Feature writer Elizabeth Weil investigated what happened at one U.S. high school where a collective frustration with the administration’s lack of response to reports of sexual harassment, abuse, and sexual assault resulted in students taking things into their own hands. In the fall of 2021, Weil identified a collection of students willing to share their experiences after a list titled “people to look out for” appeared on a girls’-bathroom wall. She spent months in conversations with a “canceled” boy and his classmates, examining how students’ demands for accountability for perpetrators of assault and harassment evolved over the school year.

The cover, a pen drawing by American artist and designer KAWS, was inspired by his sculpture “Separated,” a nod to the social isolation examined in the story. “As the father of two young children, imagining what life might be like when they become teenagers, I understand the concern that comes with navigating the complexity of relationships and how that is layered with the realities of the pandemic and social media,” says @kaws.
