I'm looking for a gender-bender that blurs the lines between genders. A manga where it doesn't matter whether the characters are female or male or whatever and nobody feels the need to make sure of what pieces the so called cross-dresser actually has under their uniform.

Oresama Teacher- Seems to fit. Nobody really knows or cares and there is a weird bunny mask.
1/2 Prince- the MC is a female that looks/acts like a male and is stronger than most guys.The main love interest doesnt care if she is a male or a female (and doesn't try to find out which one she is.(

To be clear, you're looking for a manga where gender isn't an issue? Like at all?

Sorry I haven't taken a look at your lists.

Where this is a theme:
Claudine...!
Ai no Shintairiku
Double House
Shinshi Doumei More like recurring sub-theme
Paros no Ken. It's about "transcending gender status".

Gender isn't really ignored, but the whole gender lines are "blurred". The last one is more along the lines of women empowerment though. If there's an LGBT character this is pretty much a given. Everything else not so much....

Shouri no Akuma Possibly. I don't remember how much an issue it was.

I'm going to second Oresama Teacher.

Maybe 9 Banme no Musashi or Tokyo Crazy Paradise. These were both recommended to me when I asked for something similar to this once upon a time.

Houkago Hokenshitsu all the way. It's pretty good, although at the time I was very sensitive to horror so it was a bit jarring for me.

But you know
then again my ability to stand anything horror was remotely weak so.... in normal standards it isn't as scary

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
btw the main is both male and female.

Have you read Hourou Musuko? It might not be what you are looking for. It certainly "blurs the lines", but it doesn't treat gender as meaningless. In fact, the gender-identity issues of the main characters are its main theme and are treated as a big deal.

Great

Not sure if it's your taste, but Aiesu is a very realistic example of this. The main character (after the first few volumes settle on the main plot) is intersex, and it's hard to blur gender/sex lines more than this. But the story is still pretty upbeat and very beautiful, so I think anyone (who's not too close-minded) could really love it.

I love shingeki no kyojin and ichi.
they're both excellent mangas and neither focus on gender much at all. or at least not yet. neither is completed and i haven't yet fully caught up with shingeki. but both have strong leads, both male and female, and there are canonically queer women in shingeki, or at least one for sure, which is awesome.

i don't think sprite focuses on it overmuch.

now that i'm thinking about it, ichi does have it's moments where the characters are surprised the female lead is as good as she is, because she's a woman, but there's not much else to my knowledge.

of course these are mainly manga that don't really focus on the gender binary, but the binary isn't challenged that much either.

Amakusa 1637 is pretty excellent with this though. this would probably match closest to what you're looking for of those i've recommended. Sengoku Strays is pretty good as well.

pika ichi is cute and adorable and gender isn't as much of a focus here either, again, at least as far as i've read.

some others:
umi no kishidan
chotto edo made
kemonotachi no yoru
hellsing is a bit dark and gets a bit boring near the end, but it's a really good read and the anime's good too.
gokusen is AMAZING!
saver would be pretty close to what you're looking for as well.

Attack on Titan
the strongest character is a girl and doesn't get sexualized and is the main guy's protector. Throughout the series I don't remember any sexist remark being made at all.
