Yes, please, a man should tell her how she’s doing it wrong.

She’s collecting stories. If there are no stories to tell, as some of you claim, she’ll get nothing. “Skewing” isn’t the issue here since she isn’t asking “how often does this happen” but, instead, “Tell me about something if it happened to you.”

I feel I need to point something out.  Your invitation to that form says "If any women in hackerspaces have stories of sexism they'd like to share with me for an article".

One of your questions in your form is: "Have you had any experiences of sexism, misogyny, harassment, or assault in a hackerspace?"

Given your invitation I would suggest that you've already skewed your results.
