gmo refers to recombinant DNA technology

That is what the wiki you referenced means by "modern biotechnology". Selective plant breeding is not genetic engineering. Recombinant DNA is a process that takes genes from viruses and bacteria or other life forms and uses them to insert genes into bacteria, plants, animals etc. using a gene gunor a virus. So no my parents didn't genetically modify me using recombinant DNA technology to insert genes from other life forms they just created me the old fashioned way by mixing their human genes together in a natural time tested method. Hope that clears up your confusion.
