So, does this mean cutie marks don't define who you are anymore?

No they still completely define you and your destiny. The episode reinforced it more by how bad dash's fly speed became without her mark. It was not years of training, following the wonder bolts, breaking clouds, wonderbolt academy, or heart. It was a small butt tattoo.
Same with twilights years of studying magic. It is only because her butt tattoo.

They in large part do define who you are, but they're not your entirety.

Starlight Glimmer sucked their talents out.

...now, how did she manage to avoid rain or sweat for all those years?

Or sexual fluids. Did she just not... engage?

Talent is one thing. Years of hard practice and psychical conditioning is another. Dash should still be fast by her own past physical work. She would not have her extraordinary magic abilities like a sonic boom. But her baseline should not be the slowest Pegasus there. Even the newborn poundcake who is mark-less moves faster than that.

Yeah thats true. Weird they said they would finally explore the cutie marks but end up making it seem pointless. So pretty much the cutie marks no matter what are the reason you do everyday regular things....

The villain was good. The cult brainwashing was good. All new characters was good. The choices on what to take from the main 6 was bad. Because last season's final showed us what the mane 6 are like without their cutie marks. And we know from discord what the ponies are like reversed.
We even know what the ponies are like when their talents are switched.

>How is a southern accent a talent related to kicking trees? Applebloom has no mark and she has an accent.

I wanna say ether comedy or or the old earth ponies are dumb jokes, that people keep using.

The episode was one sided. You had a village that embraced equality and sameness. And none of them decided to stay that way.
It made sure to say that not a one of them was happy with equality. And none among them realized she must have her mark to cast that spell then try and defend her.
So You have no choice but to become equal and be unhappy. Then you have no choice but to be different and now you are all happy.
It did not leave open different choices for different ponies. Or learning to live in harmony with those who make different life choices.
So it could have embraced Faust's every girl is different. But it embraced everyone must be the same by having a cutie mark Capitalism.

Not everyone is happy being different or standout. Some people like being average and normal more than anything else. Not all cutie marks are good ones. What if scootaloo's hidden cutie mark stunted her wing growth?

If you were snails and your cutie mark's magic makes you dumb and have a long neck. Or snips and your cutie mark makes you short. Or diamond tiara's who makes her a mean rich girl. Would you want to keep those marks?

Was it said that the magic is limited to cutie marks?

It did seem a tad forced that they all turned against Starlight Glimmer upon discovering she still had her mark, and all wanted their marks back.
