Why is she insisting Ruth hasn't moved on?

It could be wishful thinking on her part, or something that happened off page during the timeskip.

Sapphic relationships are a new thing she has claimed for herself and pinned hrr identity to, until she gets more secure I imagine she feels the need for them to be ambiguously good things.

Trouble is, Becky being insecure about something and so massively over compensating with petty shallow full-of-herself antics while making no progress to actually achieve any security is her THING.

Why is she insisting Ruth hasn't moved on?

I mean, she's not wrong, if the Booster Psych Dissection during that hall meeting a while (real-time) back is any indication.

But...how does she know Ruth hasn't moved on, is my question.

The first is that Jennifer knows Ruth and her hangups

And the second, I assume, is Jennifer projecting.

Seems to us like she's saying Ruth hasn't moved on because Ruth didn't drop the class.

The fact that she also didn't drop the class... well, y'know, she's still gotta blame Ruth.

No, Becky. No.

The obvious solution here is Becky needs to drop the class before they team up to kill her.

So she is aware that those two are a romantic dumpster fire.

I under estimated you Becky. Keep this up and I'll call it character development.

Ok, fair play to you, Becky and Willis. That was actually really good.

Now we wait for this to end up with the two getting back together again.

Weird it seems like Ruth is the one who did the relationship breaking fuck up, you'd be sure that it would be Jennifer.

Well, Ruth was taking medication and therapy for her psychological problems, which may have made her more lucid, realizing that the relationship was no good. It also could be that the side effects made her loopy enough to call things off during an episode and they've never resolved it.
