Show the list of masculine and feminine genders?

Your question doesn't really make sense in the context of the French language. All nouns are either masculine or feminine, and all adjectives and pronouns have both a masculine form and a feminine form (occasionally they are the same). Any word modifying or replacing a given noun must match that noun's gender.

For example:

J'aime bien ce livre. Il est assez intéressant. -- I like this book. It is rather interesting.

J'aime bien cette sculpture. Elle est assez intéressante. -- I like this sculpture. It is rather interesting.

In English only one word changes (book -> sculpture). But in French all the words relating to that noun also change, since livre is masculine while sculpture is feminine.

What does as welcome as a skunk at a lawn party mean?

Unless it has had its musk gland removed, a skunk would not be very welcome at a lawn party because it would be frightened by human presence and might because of this spray to protect itself from perceived danger. This possibility would drive the guests away from the party due to the rancorous aroma a skunk can produce. That would not be the desired situation of either the guests or especially the host. Therefore this phrase is an analogy implying that whatever is "as welcome as a skunk at a lawn party" is very unwelcome.
