Borg A Robot has been made a citizen

The story from Mashable:

People are outraged that Sophia the robot has more rights than most women in Saudi Arabia
Quote:
Sophia the robot, made by American firm Hanson Robotics, has been officially named a citizen of Saudi Arabia — the first country in the world to grant a robot the right to citizenship.
I get a real creepy feeling from this, and it's not just the women's rights issue.
