So, I'm applying to jobs/internships right now and this occurred to me.

If you are applying to something called " Editorial/Publishing Intern" or similar, and they mention wanting things like "meticulous attention to detail" and you'd be doing proofreading and content reviewing , is it considered a plus if you represent yourself as extremely likely to notice discriminatory language? Or would that be considered irrelevant, or a downside (like, you'd focus on that instead of changing your to you're and be a scary pc police)?

I've heard things on web sites where someone got more job offers when she removed her Women's studies minor from her resume than when she had it there, so I wonder. This particular place I'm applying to develops exam review materials for engineering/architecture etc, though I ask this as a general question as well.
