As there is asexuality in the game now...

There is something to avoid Lustful Asexuals? I mean, "I'm horny at nothing at particular" seems a bit weird to me. Or would it represent aromantic people, with sexual but not romantic attraction?

It was said earlier that such a thing exist in real life. How accurate that is I have no idea.

Asexuality means you aren't sexually attracted to anyone, but it doesn't mean you can't have a sex drive (if fact asexuals generally have a similar sex drive compared to non-asexuals). It's just that the sex drive is not aimed at anything in particular (though it can be relieved through masterbation or even sex).

So chaste and lustful are traits that can equally apply to asexuals and non-asexuals.

On the aromantic point. They are generally folded under the asexual umbrella, but I don't know if CK3 is going to try to represent all these various flavours of asexuality or if it will stick with only one.

About “View on Gender” Tenet, aren't it somewhat lack flexibility? Just 3 options, while CK2 had wider "specter" (islam was less restrictive than "agnatic clans" , for example). In real life ther was, and is, such oddities like mostly female clergy in otherwise patriarchal society (Korean shamanism), gender equal church with noblewoman's trained in martial metters for self defense (and some became prominent warriors), yet government was strictly male (feudal Japan), or society where male exclusive clan chief ("liege", sorta) was elected by female exclusive elders ("vassals", kinda) (Irocise). I think gender roles in clergy, military and government should be viewed separately.
Besides, many stereotypically patriarchal societies (Europe and Middle East) in fact had quite a lot female warriors and military commanders.
To add to this,i noticed something ironic. Iroquois was female dominated culture, but didn't have tradition of female warriors. At all. Apparently the same true for saami of this time period (or so i heard). On the other hand, some African kingdoms (most notably Dagoba) had all-female royal guard (in dagoban case later greatly expanded into large portion of whole military) specifically because women couldn't inherit, therefore female guards was more trustworthy.In other words, examples of completely opposite of what we have in the game :D Such things, probably, can be handled via culture , or special innovations.

And, there probably should be events for members of not dominant gender to became knight/commander, as this happened in real life.

It would be great if the conversion dialogue shown in the OP could be changed for Buddhist realms, no actual Buddhist would EVER say "embrace Siddharta", since that was just the personal name of the Buddha BEFORE he attained enlightenment (and so it would be utterly meaningless to "embrace" him). Buddhists would say "embrace the Buddha's teachings" or "agree to follow the path of the Buddha".
