Xor strings in ruby with speeds good enough for crypto?

I need to xor strings with speeds good enough to not be the bottleneck
in my crypto application. I was going to use the fast_xor gem but I
think it is very buggy. Is there any way I can get fast xor of strings
with ruby, or some other extension for it in C? What is my best option
here?

Sorry for the advertisement, but I really think
