No permissions to manage my own gem

I've just created a new gem (for the first time), I ran gem build my_gem and tried to push to but I got a message 'You do not have permission to manage this gem'. What? Really? I don't have permissions to manage my newly created gem?
I ran gem owner my_gem and I got this:
- [email blocked]
Who the fuck is [email blocked]?????
gem owner my_gem my_email
You do not have permission to manage this gem
gem owner password_generator -r [email blocked]
You do not have permission to manage this gem

I am not going to lie but I am feel frustrated. I shouldn't even have to post this thread on the internet. It's so ridiculous. How's that even possible?
