Definition of Backlash

Backlash

  1.

Backlash Quotations

I feel like I'm worried about my later years in life because I feel like I'm using up so much good karma right now. There's going to be some sort of karmic backlash somewhere down the road.
Ed Helms

There's backlash about everything I do.
Lana Del Rey

When I went into 'Fiddler,' I wondered about the response I'd get - the backlash because I'm openly gay. There was none. I toured Canada and America, and not one single review suggested that I played the role gay or that I seemed anything but Tevye.
Harvey Fierstein

Horror stories give us a way of exhausting our emotions around social issues, like a woman's right to an abortion, which I always thought was the core of 'Rosemary's Baby,' or the backlash against feminism which I always thought was the core to 'Stepford Wives.'
Chuck Palahniuk

Women have become stronger, and there's a backlash. Men have become terribly possessive. I find it much easier to get on with women.
Yoko Ono
