So, I have an idea for the science fiction short story (or short stories). World War II ends with a vastly different outcome. On the Western Front, German forces are unable to perform their Blitzkrieg campaign and fail to take Paris in 1940. After several costly offensives, they succeeds - after two years of a war that exhausted both sides. In the summer of 1942, German forces controls Low Countries and Northern France (with Paris), Mussolini just recently joined the war and seized Egypt - two years of additional development and switching most of the British forces located here to France improved Italian performance - and Tunisia from France. Isolationist President Burton K. Wheeler (elected on 1936 as a Vicepresident for the FDR, when Roosevelt retired after two terms, he won in 1940) refused to support Western countries, instead relying of the armed neutrality option. As a result, Japanese still fights against China and experienced some successes. On 1943, the Soviet Red Army invades exhausted Germany and within six months are present on the Franco-Spanish border. During the Cold War, Soviet Union controlls Finland, Norway, Germany, Denmark, Low Countries, France, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Turkey as the one party Marxist-Leninist states. In this reality they saved tens millions people more (no Generalplan Ost), so the new Paris Pact (counterpart of the Warsaw Pact) has vastly stronger economy and greater population. There is no Cuban Missile Crisis. Instead, the Okinawa Missile Base suffers malfunction and receives order to nuke Soviet Far East (in our reality same thing happened on October 28, 1962). This time however, one missile is not stopped and heads toward Vladivostok. Thankfully, it misses the city and explodes over waters of the Pacific Ocean. Yom Kippur War ends with Israel nuking Arab states and the Second Great Depression. Soviet Union experiences major oil boom as they are literally the greatest oil exporter. OGAS is implemented to assure computerized control over economy, limiting corruption and creating more efficent Gosplan. In the 1990s, World War erupts. Soviet Union launches 25,000-40,000 nuclear bombs towards NATO, NATO launches 20,000-40,000 nuclear bombs against the Soviet bloc. Soviet forces uses biological weapon to temporary paralyse all males (through chromosome-targeted bioagent). It does not work as expected - instead, it wipes out 80-90% of male population. As a result of Soviet biological warfare, less male babies are born. So, here we are. In Mexico women established totalitarian society that worships the current ruler as a incarnation of the Goddess of Time. Women of neo-Aztec state believe that the male domination and gender equality enraged Goddess who decided to punish humanity by destroying most of the men. In their religion, they believe that women are naturally destinied to dominate over men, with no room for equality. Human sacrifice is restored. If a man volunteers to be killed, he will be reborn as a woman in next time cycle (after next nuclear war). Men who have "destructive behaviour" (proponents of the gender equality) are sacrificed too - to ensure that Goddess does not destroy the world as a punishment for not punishing wickedness. New religion is formed on the basis that women are superior to everything else on the world. They were created as the last creation - from the man's rib, while everything else was created from the dust. As a result, they are products of highly advanced engineering, unlike men and animals. Is there a way to reasonably explain the rise of such radical new religion?
