What church do you attend. (Asking for neighbor)
Not in my little church, but in larger ones I've visited, especially weddings.

It's not as simple as "did she ask for it or are you a gentleman"? There's a range of behavior that nowadays gets called "assault", and I have difficulty understanding it as "assault".

I used to go out dancing a couple time a week. If I met a gal in the club who started dancing with me, and there was enough body contact going on anyways, I never thought it was "inappropriate" to put my hands on her. None of these women were dressed in a "ladylike" manner, and I wasn't being a gentleman. But conversely, I wasn't doing something unwanted either (or maybe they just stuck with me because I was buying their drinks).

On the other hand, grabbing a random woman from behind in a club is not the best way to strike up a conversation with a stranger. Have seen it happen and it may not end well for the grabber.

In other social settings, the more a woman presented herself as a lady, the more I'd behave as a gentleman. It's the difference between being forward and being flirtatious ("what are we doing tonight?" as opposed to "would you like to have a drink later?"). And the more professionally I was dressed, women would generally be more ladylike in response.

Conversely, there have been times (recently in fact!) when I was wearing a suit, dressed and behaving as a gentleman, and approached by women with fairly direct, "unladylike" propositions. Had to turn them down because the redhead would get rather unhappy with me otherwise. (If I were single, I'd likely have said "yes" to some of them).

Always be the gentleman...always. Don't care who they are or what they look like, always treat them and give them the same respect you demand of yourself.

Man mine too. A couple weekends ago I was sure if we didn’t get out of there soon I was going to burst into flames.
