I'm trying to write a short story right now.

CURRENT IDEAS:
The story will be consisting of two plot lines, marked α and β. The α line consists of the world we know today. The β line is the world if it got to the progression developmentally to where our world is today and autistic individuals make up the majorities of society.

The purpose of the story is to promote that neither a neurotypical nor autistic mind type, but criticize the way human nature views both sides, and people will inevitably discriminate the different anyway.

I also want to design a setting for the antagonist to be in (perhaps school, workplace was debated)

Neutrotypicals in the β line are referred to as people with Johnsonism. The "developmental abnormality" was discovered by Joseph Johnson in the 19th Century, who observed abnormally high social intelligence and noticeable use of sarcastic or casual speak.

More criteria based on: http://isnt.autistics.org/dsn.html

More coming soon...

Punctuation, capitalization, paragraph breaks and other standard reader aids are needed before further evaluation.
