    - that's already been explained.

    You would make the diary stronger by editing "girl" with a line through and adding "co-worker."

    Doing so would show that you noticed or learned something about unconscious male privilege.

    You're refusal to do that simple edit, and the whole second part of the diary where you opin at length about what's in the head of someone you just met, well those are features the epitomize privilege - male privilege, to be exact.

    The overall message that comes across seems to be that your maleness trumps her whiteness. And that's unfortunate, because I don't think that was your conscious intent in writing the diary.
