I thought this would be interesting after all that gender and female stuff they talked about (Here)

Nice initiative, jj!

(I'm working on another survey, which would ask a bunch of other, related, questions as well.)

Hm, no. This survey is anonymous, which is a good thing. Let's not ask people to out themselves as intersex or something else that causes them to identify as neither male nor female (or both).

(I think it would be more useful to ask about gender than about sex, but I didn't make this survey, so... *shrug*)

I know it's a joke... but they're still human. Maybe they are intersex, and maybe they, for some other reason, don't want to say either male or female (perhaps because it's not really clear whether this survey is about gender or assigned sex or something else). And there is also the possibility that some people are being facetious, we really can't know that, although I do hope that everyone answered honestly.
