It reverses the stat changes, so it would drop it two stages. It wouldn't work the other way around, that is, the pokemon with the ability perversity uses it against a pokemon and said pokemon loses attack and becomes confused.

"All moves or abilities that would normally increase a stat will decrease it, and ones that would normally decrease a stat will increase it. This also applies to self-inflicted moves, such as Charge Beam, Close Combat and Leaf Storm. This does not include Baton Passed stats."

Yes, the Attack stat will sharply drop and induce confusion. It's good that you included the detail on who uses Swagger, because Perversity only activate on the Pokemon whose stats would be affected.
