I'd define a recreational kayak as an entry level to intermediate skill level boat, designed for safety and ease of use in a variety of reasonably calm conditions.
The boat doesn't have to define one as a paddler. Like many people you may find you're serious enough as a recreational kayaker, or you might eventually find that you want to try sea kayaking or whitewater kayaking, for which the boats are much more specifically designed.
Anyone making an issue or putting down rec boats and/or kayakers has for one forgotten when they started, and secondly hasn't been paddling enough to be secure enough in their own abilities without using someone else as a benchmark.
