Animacy in reference to kochira, sochira, and achira...

Here, I was replying to a message, then saw something more:

You don't use kore/sore/etc for people, as far as I know. :/

What if something was encoded as "inanimate?" Like a woman, even though they are not, in Japanese. Or, what if a rock was animate? Does animacy have any role?
