For those who've watched the Time of EVE episode's so far; How would you treat androids?

In the series so far people treat androids like things. Yet the androids seem to be very much like humans when you can't see their halo's, indicating that they are indeed an android.
Personally I think the androids should be treated like humans simply because they look like it. I guess the person who made them look like humans either wanted them to:
A; Look like humans so that who ever owned an android could indentify themselves with the android (or the other way around).
B: Look like humans so that the people who own an android can treat them like trash as they would want to with other humans.

Now as option B seems stupid to me I'd go for A and indeed treat the androids in 'Time of EVE' as humans. What would you do?

I'd treat them like how I treat litter.

I would treat them more like humans.

I fell treating something that so resembles a human as simply a device could create unhealthy associations in the brain. leading to one slipping up and sometimes treating other humans the same way.

Frankly, I suspect looking at how people treat pets would be a good analog for how they would treat androids. Some would treat them with respect, while mindful they are not human, others would actually treat them better than they treat most of their fellow humans, while others would treat them as disposable objects to be abused at their will.
