perverse <-------------------> normal

this image on p14 is missing an axis that would make explicit the implicit privilegings int their article and in their edited book. Abramson and Gong state that they favor a "productive pluralism" in comparative ethnography, and the articles in their edited volume could be arranged according to these axes. But this presumes a kind of neutrality to the spectrums, and to their anchoring binary terms, in which the terms on the right are the preferred, stronger, "normal" terms (in their cultural coding system) while those on the left are the less desirable, weaker, "perverse" terms
