While it may not have been very nice, there is not much recourse for an individual who is called a name. Now, the rest of your interaction with this adult is somewhat more problematic. You should talk about it with an adult you trust and have that adult talk to this security person to see what all the hullabaloo is about. You could also contact the juvenile right project through the Oregon State Bar for free confidential advice on such matters.

A middle school security guard can absolutely call you a "badass." Additionally, they can definitely say "You think you're a badass," because that's not even him calling you a name - that's him stating an opinion about what he believes you think about yourself.
