I agree, it does show Harry to be more mature.
But something else we have to factor in is that Snape called all Muggle-borns by the word "mudblood", and Lily was kind of an exception until that point. I would understand if she felt offended if he called her kind mudbloods, even if she was an exception. It's kind of like a friend making fun of everyone in your racial group, except for you.

Their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart.
