Journal? or Diary?

I didn't know the difference between journal and diary.

My tutor told me:
  • Journal is for guys.
  • Diary is for girls.

I guess most native Japanese don't know this like me.

However kind lang-8 users clarified more. They said
  • Journal is just a more sophisticated diary.
  • Diary is a kind of a personal record for the writer to read.
  • Journal is a kind of what is written for other people to read.

I thank them for the meanings.
