Why the camera as opposed to a camera? We are talking about camera as a concept here, not some specific camera? Just trying to understand

comment Can I use “it” to refer to a person?
In many English works it is used in reference to a person as a way to show their low status. I.e. Cleopatra can call some random person "it" because she is a pharaoh and formally a goddess, and the person she talks about is total nothing compared to her (as seen in "Rome" the TV series). Obviously real Cleopatra didn't speak English. But I take it as an English way to express the difference in status and I assume it would be very insulting to call someone it, wouldn't it?

comment Should my child's name contain “Inn”?
Many common names with ancient origins have real meanings which would be perceived as stupid if translated into English. I.e. Mr. Strongandhealthy Smith would be ridiculed beyond any belief. But Mr. Valentine Smith is completely fine. Still it doesnt change the fact that kids with unusual/silly names will be ridiculed; parents do need to think more before comming up with "original" names. +1 for answer and +1 to jungjoon for asking
