"Versus" can also indicate a comparison/contrast of two or more things.

Comparison = how two or more things can be similar

Contrast = how two or more things can be different

It does not HAVE to be confrontational. Of course, if a person has been trained as a fighter or as military personnel (according to one possible analogy), it certainly could be RECEIVED as "aggressive" or "confrontational".
