Merge Male/Female articles[edit]

Proposing merge; all three articles are stubs and would benefit from consolidation. (|-- UlTiMuS 18:56, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

The problem with that is the male and female veins originate in different parts of the body, and thus have a different course. (Ovarian veins enter the true pelvis and testicular veins do not. Testicular veins travel through inguinal canal). I'm not against merging, but all of the differences should be noted, and it might be awkward to address the different things in one article. They, of course, are also subjected to different types of stresses (e.g. childbirth for ovarian veins). But a lot of the other stuff is the same, e.g. destination. Mauvila 21:36, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
You're quite right, but that's why we have things like sections. In fact, I think that the content of all of the articles would be improved if the contrast between them was addressed. My main reason for proposing the merge, however, remains the fact that the articles are so short and context would be much better if the related parts were covered in one place.

Oppose merge. The context can be addressed in gonadal vein. I think it makes sense to keep the articles separate. The length of the articles will change as time goes on. If one were to click on to testicular vein-- from testicle is one really going to be interested in the ovarian vein? Personally, I don't think so. Nephron  T|C 19:55, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

***Please note that the picture has been inversed: the IVC and aorta are the wrong way around and the spleen is on the left, ascending and descending colon are the wrong way around. sources: grays — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:21, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
