Is it possible you have Jruby installed anyway? It sounds like Jruby’s
version of gem is running. Try which gem or gem env to find out.
If it is Jruby’s gem, try putting MRI ahead of it in your $PATH.

Yes.

I just removed it, but it doesn’t help

➤ rm -rf /usr/local/bin/jruby
➤ jruby
-bash: jruby: command not found
➤ gem install rdiscount
… same error …

Try which gem or gem env to find out.

Can’t see problem here.

I’ve jruby installed via Homebrew. I’ve removed it and re-install ruby.
Now all works fine.
