I don't think anyone meant to imply that ONLY PTSD is normal

The point being made is that the reactions to stress are as varied as the people exposed to stress, and the the "disorder" is unfair labeling of a very common, "normal" reaction.
Being exposed to trauma and having NO emotional response is the only "abnormal" response. Some will brush it off easily, some will suffer mightily, but the only "disorder" was the trauma, not the reaction.
