Jessica Williams has no time for "bozos."

In an interview with Cosmopolitan.com, the "Daily Show's" Senior Beyoncé Correspondent spoke about how her feminism has affected her dating life. According to Williams, her values mean that she holds men to high standards -- eliminating bozos or catcallers right off the bat. She went on to explain:

I look for a man who respects my womanhood and doesn't make me feel like I have to be a stereotype. Like a housewife. I don't think I'll ever be a housewife. I don't know how to cook. I work a lot. So, for me then, it's important to find a man who can cook. Who will make the house a home more than I can. You need someone who is fluid, gender-wise.

Williams shared that, like many women, she struggles with figuring out how to occupy a role in a relationship that makes sense for her, not one that just conforms to traditional gender roles.

"Sometimes it makes me so anxious, and I get so much anxiety, because I'm like, Well, maybe I should be this; maybe I should be this housewife and be kind of like my mother and take care of the home," she said. "But that's not what I want. So I feel like, as a woman of this time, we're often now fighting and coming to terms with what our mothers want us to be or what we feel like we're supposed to be and who we really are and what we really want to do."

Here's to all women figuring that out -- bozos beware.
